What happens when apps access third-party websites?

Apps can be installed to further extend the abilities of your Atlassian cloud products. It’s important for anyone to be aware of certain security risks when apps access third-party websites.

Access to external websites

An app may attempt to send users to external websites, as part of its core functionality. If an app tries to access a URL that’s not known to the product, a warning message like the one below may appear:

Modal asking if you trust the app that will access an external website

You must be sure that you trust the external website because the app may share data with the website.

When you’re on external websites, you’re no longer accessing Atlassian cloud, and Atlassian cannot guarantee the security of such websites.

Prevent sharing of sensitive information

You must refrain from sharing your credentials or any personal data when using apps with Atlassian cloud products.
