Question about Electrical Supplies
Is this a new bidet installation, USA? What year was home built and/ or remodeled?
It's probably safe but It would not be wise to use the unit without GFCI protection.
Please describe the installation. Is it plugged into a bathroom circuit with a GFCI breaker in the house panel or is there a GFCI receptacle protecting multiple outlets in the bathroom.
The typical cause for GFCI nuisance trips is an improper connection of protective equipment ground and neutral (grounded conductor) somewhere downstream of the GFCI protection device. IOTWs, a white neutral wire is touching bare ground wire or metal box.
You might try plugging the bidet into a long 3 wire extension cord so you can try a different GFCI outlet... in the kitchen or dining room. If it works at different GFCI circuits then likely it's not the unit but rather the bathroom wiring.
