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 I have been a Slack administrator and can confirm this is true. Also, I have been told that Slack is now phishing through your messages for advertising purposes as well.

I am not entirely sure. I believe this is true of all Slack administrators that were defined when setting up the channels of your org.
