Odoo stores customer data in a dedicated database. The data of customers are not shared with others. Odoo also ensures the use of access control rules to ensure complete control over confidential data. 
Two-Factor Authentication
Two-factor authentication or 2FA can be considered as a method to improve the security of any account. This will help the user to have double protection. We can consider it as one of the best methods to protect accounts from hacking. Let us check what two-factor authentication is? It is nothing but the storage of secret information inside the authenticator. When we need to access or log in to the software we need to exchange the code provided to the authenticator. In One-factor authentication, the hacker will have to crack only the password. Suppose a person accidentally gets the password, then he will be able to access the data and misuse it. But, in two-factor authentication, the user will be directed to enter the password first. Then they will have to enter the secret info as well. 
Assured Password security
Odoo uses a standard password to protect customer documents. The customer will be solely responsible to reset the password in case of the loss of the password.
Odoo Employee access
Even if the Odoo employees access the user accounts for making some corrections or rectifications, this will be done with staff authorization. That means, Odoo employees never access your user password. This indicates that Odoo values the privacy of the customer.
Assured security Odoo Data Centre
Odoo uses security cameras for round-the-clock monitoring of physical data centers. The entry of staff to this location is also restricted. The entry is limited to technicians and that too is monitored.
