Bind shells do not connect back to the attacker and accepts incoming connections from everyone by default. They have to be protected by a password or IP whitelist to be appropriate in redteaming. Firewalls usually block incoming connections, so the reverse shell is used to bypass that. But bind shells are more simple and shorter, and sometimes the only option in a buffer overflow with little room for shellcode
