Data location

All the data Caido creates is stored in a single folder. Currently, it is not possible to create projects outside this folder. By default, this folder is in a standard location based on the OS.

MacOS~/Library/Application\ Support/io.caido.Caido/

You can however change the location of the whole folder if you need to!

WARNING: Make sure to copy your existing data to the new location before restarting your instance. Otherwise it will start fresh as if you were on a new device.


For the CLI, use the --data-path option:

caido --data-path /some/data/path


For the Desktop application, set the Data path in the advanced options:
