Slack stands by its decision on encryption

Collaboration and communication software provider Slack has maintained its stance on end-to-end encryption, citing that the security measure was “not its way”. Despite the file sharing function on the program, which could potentially see millions of private documents falling into the wrong hands, Slack insists that end-to-end encryption would be bad news for its enterprise customers. This type of encryption would limit access to files to selected users. As an alternative, Slack has proposed a new security feature – but users are sceptical.
