Privacy

Terminal sessions obviously contain a bunch of potentially sensitive information and we want the absolute minimum sent to our servers in order to provide you with the best possible experience. Our philosophy is complete transparency around any data leaving your machine.

Any data sharing that is not telemetry is 100% opt-in and under your control.

Telemetry data does not include console input or output.

Note that this page does not contain our official privacy policy - for that please see this pdf that basically says the same thing in much less readable legal language.

Our Product

Our product is a fully-native, local app that runs fine with no internet connection whatsoever (although you will lose some of our cooler features).  By default, we are not doing any processing of your terminal session on our servers.  

For our current beta phase only, there are a couple of required things sent to our server. We collect login email, crash-reports, and generic telemetry (things like whether a block has been created or whether a user has used our AI command search). This information helps us improve user experience and monitor the health of our application. Please see below sections for details.

When Warp comes out of beta, all telemetry will be 100 % opt-in, since Warp will be a fully fleshed out product at that time.

Our Business Model

The app is 100% free for any and all individuals. Our business plan is to create collaborative and cloud-based features that businesses will be willing to pay for. Please check out our pricing page to learn more.

Please note that our business model is not about collecting and monetizing any of your personal data.

Open Source

Our plan is to eventually open-source the Rust client code and related projects,  like UI framework. The server portion of Warp will remain closed-source for now.

However, we have open-sourced some of Warp’s extension points, like themes and workflows. We would love it if you checked out the Github repos and contributed to our growing community!

We also can commit that if Warp the company ever ceases to exist, all of the Warp code (client and server) will be available with an open source license.

Specifics

By default, none of your command input, output, or keystrokes is sent to our servers. 

Unless you specifically choose to use a cloud feature like Block Sharing and AI Search, you can feel completely comfortable that no data is being uploaded in the background (except for telemetry and crash reports during the beta).

Login

Right now, in our beta phase, we require a user login by email, GitHub or Google to access Warp. Logging in via GitHub or Google just gives us access to the email associated with your Github or Google account, nothing more.

Telemetry

When Warp comes out of beta in the future, telemetry will be 100% opt-in and anonymous.

But right now, for our beta phase, we do send telemetry by default and associate it with the logged in user.

It makes it much easier to reach out and get feedback when something goes wrong. Warp does not track keystrokes and cannot see any input or output of the terminal. We track things like whether the user has created a new block, looked through our welcome tips, or used our AI Command feature. Information like this helps us improve our product and correctly prioritize engineering work.
