In today's digital landscape, where data privacy is of utmost importance, it is crucial to exercise caution when using test data that may contain personal or sensitive information.

Below you can find a list of recommendations to ensure the protection of personal and customer data when performing testing:

  • Ensure that chosen test data is relevant for the context of the application

  • Ensure the availability of appropriate test data - the data used for testing should be suitable for public exposure:

    • Avoid using sensitive and private content during testing an application (e.g. family photos, financial invoices, etc)

    • Be mindful when exposing your screen during screen recording - ensure there isn’t anything personal / sensitive that you do not want others to see.

      • This also applies to showing other workspaces that you might have access to on the Testlio platform.

  • Some testing scenarios might require usage of other applications that are installed on your device - such as e-mail clients. Make sure that you don’t expose anything personal in the screen recording in such cases.

    • Be also mindful about Testlio invites that may reside in your inbox.

We remind you that:

  • Cross using test data from other applications that you might have tested, is strictly prohibited.
