🦉 What is GitGuardian?

GitGuardian is the ultimate security layer for developers.
We detect hardcoded secrets in repositories and help you with prevention and remediation.

🥇 Benefits

1. Scan your codebase for 350+ types of secrets

GitGuardian scans your selected repositories and raises alerts only for critical secrets, such as API keys or other credentials. GitGuardian’s detection algorithm has been battle-tested, at scale, on over three years of activity in all public GitHub repositories.

2. Easily remediate your hardcoded secrets

If you ever experience a leak involving a credential, we have a complete remediation guide used by 100k+ developers each year. We’ll show you how to revoke the secret and remove it from your git history.

3. Get an overview of your security posture

Get a health status for every repository & view reports in your GitGuardian dashboard
