Currently, the tech industry is going through that phase, where everyone is worried about only one thing, and that’s privacy. Slack, which is a messaging app tech company, has decided to make some changes to its platform. Slack has added more security features to the platform, which will prevent people from accessing the information and sensitive data. The new functionality states that only authorized users and devices can access the Slack’s business workplace. This new feature also includes a secondary authentication on mobile phone such as TouchID, FaceID, generated password. Now one will have an ability to block file downloads or copying of messages.
These new features which are focused on security show that Slack is more concerned about data privacy issues. Now those unauthorized devices or users won’t be able to see or download any files or even copy some critical messages. There’s a domain whitelist sign tool which can be used to put a limit on the access of slack workplace from a network. This feature is helpful to stop employees from using other slack workplaces when they are working.
There are more features which Slack is trying to implement in further updates. There are going to be more enterprise-oriented features users will get in the upcoming months’ executives said. There will be an option to control which browser a device is using to open a link within the slack workplace. There is also going to be a feature called “jailbreak” detection, which will tell whether a user is using an outdated version of Slack or not. It will also force users to upgrade to a newer version if the older one is less secured. All of these new features will be loved by Slack’s enterprise users who might be concerned about the data privacy issues.
