Protect GitLab instances from user behavior that disrupts productivity or an organization's ability to build and deploy code.
We make abuse manageable.
Our goal is not to stop abuse. Barriers to stop abusive behavior have an exponentially diminishing rate of return. The more barriers that you impose to stop abuse the more you discourage legitimate usage. As a result, efforts to stop abuse become more costly than the abuse itself. Our goal is to surface abuse before it causes disruption and allow our automated systems, the Trust and Safety team, or the admin of the self-managed instance to take the correct action for that abuse – or correct any action that was taken in error
A number of issues are intentionally confidential despite our value of transparency. This is because we don't want to make it obvious to abusers the exact details of our controls. We aren't relying on "security by obscurity"; however, we also don't want to make it easier for the abusers.
