Direktnachrichten in Slack sind nicht mehr privat – Export erlaubt “Mitlesen”

TheNextWeb berichtet unter der reißerischen Überschrift “Slack’s new policy lets bosses read employees’ DMs without consent”, quasi der Chef kann mitlesen, über eine neue Funktionalität, die es Administratoren erlaubt, ohne Benachrichtigung alle Daten inklusive derer in privaten 1:1-Konversationen (also Direktnachrichten) zu exportieren und damit zu lesen.

If your company uses Slack for group communication, you might want to watch what you say in Direct Messages with your colleagues: the app now lets administrators export all the data shared through it, including those private conversations – without notifying you.

That’s thanks to an updated privacy policy and tools that help Slack comply with GDPR rules; they grant customers on Slack’s Plus and Enterprise Grid plans access to a self-service tool for exporting data from all public and private channels. This functionality was previously available too, but it used to notify users when it was turned on, so they’d know that their DMs weren’t entirely private.
