Privacy and security are really important. We know - it’s part of the reason why we started Snaplet: it’s a pain to get realistic data to code against, and sanitizing a dump of production can be risky. It’s dangerous to have personally-identifiable information (PII) on a local machine, which is why Snaplet automatically detects and transforms PII, and allows you to control those transformations at any time.
In theory then, Snaplet snapshots should be safe of running afoul from any PII issues. If your snapshot had to land up in the hands of a third party, because there’s no potentially sensitive information contained inside, it wouldn’t be of any use or value to a bad actor, and at the very least, you wouldn’t be in breach of GDPR or other data privacy regulations.
Here’s Snaplet software developer Khaya Zulu giving a demo of encryption:
