Better Bladder uses Google Firebase for:
(i) User Authentication
Firebase Authentication allows you to sign up and log in - Most apps need to know the identity of a user. Knowing your identity allows us to securely save user data in the cloud and provide the same personalized experience across all of your devices.
(ii) Database Storage
Your data is safely stored on the secure Firestore database, which automatically encrypts all data before it is stored. The location of our Firestore database is nam5 (us-central).
