How UserTesting keeps your data secure

For more information on how UserTesting keeps data secure, see our information about Security.




What data is stored where?

A: Session data from UserTesting, including video files, audio files, transcripts, and clickstreams, are stored in the chosen data region. All other data (including test plans, written answers to questions, screener results, IPA, and APK) are stored in the US.


Where is data processed?

While we can allow customers to select which region to host their data in, this does not restrict data from being processed outside of that region. For a full list of processing locations, see the relevant affiliate or sub-processor page found here.


Will anything else change if I host my data in a new region?

No. Your teams will enjoy the same UserTesting experience and features they use today.
