I’ve just published a new article on how to use Privacy Rules in Bubble.
The trigger to write the article is both that it’s one of the things I get asked about the most, but also that I’m somewhat concerned that a lot of Bubble users are not aware of just how important it is to set Privacy Rules up correctly to protect private data. As I mention in the article, I see everything from private user data to API secret keys revealed in some apps, and I suspect the developer is oblivious.
And the crazy thing is: privacy rules are simple to set up.
I’ve also included
- a quick way to check in Chrome DevTools just what kind of data your browser sits on as you perform a search, so that you can check for yourself what your app exposes
- an explanation of the View attached files setting (which is often misunderstood)
- a potential risk in running on-page workflows (also mentioned in Bubble’s documentation)
See this guide as a work in progress - I’m sure I’m not answering every question or exploring every angle, so let me know if you have questions, think it needs improvement or spot any errors.
