I threw a ton of money and effort into using GD to make a dream come true, and I guess my last issue is the privacy and security of uploading the game to be published automatically by GDevelop. Not that I don’t trust it, just want to make sure I have all bases covered!
Is it totally safe and private? Thanks again guys!
Technically speaking the online build service is completely separate from the engine, just linked within it and the upload process made simple. (The online build service is a separate project and isn’t included with the main engine source code, if I remember right)
As far as safe, it is hosted on AWS and should be secure unless your account password on your side is comprimised.
That said, you could always delete your builds from the build lists if you are concerned.
Or if you still have concerns after that, you can just build manually following the instructions on the wiki.
There are no guarantees to you or anyone using that external build server, so it is always possible someone could compromise AWS and get the data, but thats not really any different than someone compromising your PC ans getting the data.
