This is a public service announcement.

If your job uses Slack, please remember that the administrators that have been configured can view any channel and download all files and all information published, including channels that are "private" or between 2 individuals.

Your discussions are not secure and can be snooped upon, even private conversations.

In other words: there is no privacy on Slack. Period.

This is the end of this public service
announcement.

(Don't ask how I know that)

@ParadeGrotesque Public service announcement 2: same occurs for Mastodon (and maybe Pleroma)

@Darks @ParadeGrotesque And approximatively all chat services… on Rocket Chat you can use OTR between two individuals, but all other conversations are stored in clear text in the MongoDB database…
