SOC2 and HIPAA certifications, Organizations updates, Email deliverability, and test mode.

SOC 2 / HIPAA Certifications

We're proud to announce that we are officially SOC 2 Type 2, and HIPAA certified! Security and privacy are our utmost directives here at Clerk. While we talk a big game about developer experience (and live up to it!), everyone at Clerk knows that security and privacy take precedence over any other initiative. These new certifications highlight our commitment to securing your data and keeping it private.

The entire team worked on this initiative -- it involved a lot of training, a complete audit of all our processes, and a complete audit of every system that Clerk uses. We are extraordinarily confident in the security and privacy of all data in our systems.

Email deliverability

We've created a new guide that outlines every step Clerk takes to endure that your verification emails are delivered to your inbox in a timely manner. There's a lot that goes into an email, especially ones as crucial as verification emails. Any delay, or dropped email, is catastrophic, and we treat them as critical errors here at Clerk. To learn more check our email deliverability guide.

Test mode

When running automated tests, you don't actually need to send out SMSs and Emails, but, you do want to test all of your code flows as exact as possible. We've create a new "Test Mode", that will let you use "fictional" phone numbers and emails which will always result in the same verification codes.
