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

(Don't ask how I know that)


Well, this is something I suspected of course, but that was neither confirmed nor denied by management at $WORK.

A in-depth perusal through the web interface (no information in the desktop client of course) turned up a couple of people that were both mysteriously very-well informed and admins under Slack.

@ParadeGrotesque The way I learned it was when we started digging into "What contracts can we talk about in Slack" which turned up some very interesting details, yeah.
