Does Openblocks store my data?

No, Openblocks doesn't store any data returned from your APIs or database queries.
Openblocks only serves as a proxy between client side and your data sources. When you query your APIs or databases, Openblocks server connects to the data source with your credentials, forwards the request, and returns the result data to the browser. During the whole process, Openblocks doesn't store any data from your requests or responses.
Openblocks also provides a self-hosted version. You can deploy self-hosted Openblocks images on your own device, on-premise deployment ensures you have total control over your resources and that your data is securely stored.

Is it safe to log in to my databases on Openblocks Cloud?

Yes, it is very safe for the following reasons:
  • All sensitive credentials, such as database passwords, are encrypted with AES-256 encryption.
  • All sensitive credentials will never be sent to the browser from the server. They are only used in server side and are never exposed to the browser, the browser will display "Encrypted on the server side" as a placeholder.
