Security for confidential business info


I recently convinced my employer to allow me to use the Windows app on my work computer, but they are still concerned with making sure our confidential data is safe (no one else at my company is using Todoist that I know of). I would like to start using the Outlook app, but I'm concerned that I won't be able to reword things so that our confidential info isn't out in the cloud like I currently do for my work tasks.

I noticed that several Fortune 100 companies use Todoist, and I'm sure that they are dealing with confidential info all the time. Can you describe what security features and safeguards that Todoist has in place that would satisfy these big companies with trusting you with their data?

Hello Daniel,

Todoist doesn't own servers directly, we're using Amazon's Web Services. Therefore, we are as secure as thousands of other companies who trust Amazon (incl. some banks). You can see what world-class security standards AWS has on this page: http://aws.amazon.com/security/

Now, on top of that, we can assure you that Todoist doesn't "gather" any data on its own. That is - at no point are we collecting any information aside from whatever task names, notes or links you enter into the system yourself.

Best regards,
