How secure is my data on bimU.io?

bimU.io is secure by default. Only the account owners have access to the models they upload to bimU.io initially. Upon sharing, they can set a password to protect each model individually. The main user interface gives an overview of which models have been shared and allows to switch on and off very quickly. You have full control over your BIM models.


Additionally, bimU.io authenticates users by Single-Sign On (SSO) backed by two of the world’s largest identity providers - Google and Microsoft. Your account credentials keep private and are fully managed by your organisation.
