How secure is Sprout's application?


At Sprout Social, your account's security is taken very seriously:

  • All interactions with Sprout are encrypted with SSL over the Internet.
  • Sprout's databases are kept in a private network, completely inaccessible from the public Internet.
  • Sprout doesn't store user passwords, so even if the database was hacked, it would be impossible for the attacker to gain access to your account.
  • Sprout accesses Facebook, Twitter and other social networks on your behalf using a mechanism called OAuth; this is highly secure and flexible in that you can easily disable Sprout's access at anytime. Sprout never has access to social media passwords.
  • Sprout has received independent certification of SOC 2 Type II compliance.
