Peeps, pls remember dat on Mastodon even *DMs n private toots* are visible to d Instance's Admins

Pls exercise caution while sharing private info/pix etc over DMs here...

@Memeghnad @Deepsealioness @dearthofsid
@discoursehacker pls Boost n spread d word

@Lord_VoldeMaut @Memeghnad @Deepsealioness @dearthofsid just like dms are readable for twitter admins as well. They also do not have e2e encryption

Use an end to end encrypted messaging app like for private communication. #matrix #riot It is also decentralized and Free Software powered like #Mastodon #FreeSoftware

@stux @Memeghnad @Deepsealioness @dearthofsid
Thx for confirming dat!!
The Medium article I quoted must've gotten it wrong 😅💁‍♂️

Btw, are DMs not visible to mods in ALL instances, or is it specific to only??

@Ruminess @indiantoolmaker @Memeghnad @Deepsealioness @dearthofsid

🔸Ok so here's d catch, u shared d policy page for the '' instance, n therefore doesn't cover those of us in the '' instance

🔸@/ (admin for mstdn) confirmed yday itself dat his instance's ( mods don't hv access to their users' DMs

🔸But now @Gargron needs to confirm what d privacy policies for our instance ( are 😐🤷‍♂️

Does dis explain it??

@Lord_VoldeMaut @Ruminess @indiantoolmaker @Memeghnad @Deepsealioness @dearthofsid Mods/admins don’t have access to DMs from the Mastodon interface but database owner can retrieve them (root access). This is outlined in our privacy policy

@Gargron @Lord_VoldeMaut @Ruminess @indiantoolmaker @Memeghnad @Deepsealioness @dearthofsid Thank you Eugen@Gargron for providing this platform, I have had enough of toxic twitter and was seriously considering to shut all social media off, I hope you can keep this hate free.

Oh yes. Very important. It applies to basically all social networks, those that don't allow p2p communications.
