Improved security measures

We’re currently going through a self-imposed software penetration test to ensure that our app security is solid. As part of that process, we tightened up a number of security measures to ensure that your access to Basedash is secure.

We’re also currently going through a SOC-2 audit. If you’re interested in details this, send us an email at

For more details on our app’s security in general, check out our security page here.

Here’s a list of all the changes we implemented.
