🔸Ok so here's d catch, u shared d policy page for the 'mstdn.social' instance, n therefore doesn't cover those of us in the 'mastadon.social' instance
🔸@/firstname.lastname@example.org (admin for mstdn) confirmed yday itself dat his instance's (mstdn.social) mods don't hv access to their users' DMs
🔸But now @Gargron needs to confirm what d privacy policies for our instance (mastadon.social) are 😐🤷♂️
Does dis explain it??
@Gargron Can we see encrypted dms anytime in future?
DMs are encrypted already (that's why moderators have no way to read them) but the encryption key is in the instance's database. That's why root (instance's administrator) is not supposed to access the DMs (and decent ones do not) but technically they can do it.
What you're asking is end-to-end encryption and some people are working on it but on pleroma (and maybe some Mastodon forks, I'm not sure) rather.
