Open Source software

WeKan is an open-source project, which means that its source code is available for anyone to inspect and audit for security vulnerabilities. This makes it less likely that there are hidden security holes that could be exploited by attackers.

Self-hosted option

WeKan offers a self-hosted option, which allows you to run the software on your own servers. This gives you full control over your data and can help you ensure that your data is not being accessed or shared without your knowledge.

Access controls

WeKan allows you to set up access controls to limit who can see and edit your boards and cards. You can set permissions at the board level or for individual users, which helps you control who has access to sensitive data.


WeKan is designed with security in mind, and its features and options are built to help you protect your data and keep it secure.

Required: At least Daily Backups of WeKan MongoDB database with mongodump, and settings. Upcoming: Minio and SQLite. Bugs, updates, users deleting list or card, harddrive full, harddrive crash etc can eat your data. There is no undo yet. Only newest WeKan is supported. Please report all new bugs immediately. Sandstorm WeKan is rarely affected by any Standalone WeKan security issues. If you use Standalone WeKan on public Internet, it's better use Snap x64 automatic updates and restore from backup when needed, than to leave old vulnerable manually updated WeKan running.
