Security question of Plotly Dash

Are my python variables in the background at all exposed to client browser etc? For example if I have a user list that is imported from a DB into a python dictionary, could a user get at that?

Thanks,
Nathan

No, they are not. The main thing to think about is that the inputs to your callbacks can be totally arbitrary (e.g. even if your dropdown only shows 3 options, a user could create their own request to send any value they wanted to your callback).
