Hi,

I am using Power Bi report to process data from Azure SQL database, and now I want to enable schedule refresh for the report, but it need me to provide the user name and password.

So I would like to know how Power Bi keep my credential safe? Is it possible the credential would leak?

 

Thanks.

You should read the Power BI Security whitepaper - here 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/guidance/whitepaper-powerbi-security

Any credentials stored in Power BI are encryped in Azure, so are at least as secure as your Azure SQL database.

Hope this helps
