“Slack could have built this system in a way that no one within the company had access into user data,” said Cardozo, referencing zero-knowledge encryption, an end-to-end encryption method. “What it comes down to is, ‘trust us,’” Cardozo said. “That’s the same thing that Uber said and then they were caught with their pants down with God mode,” a widely available internal tool that allowed Uber staffers to spy on both drivers and passengers.

EFF to UN: You Need a Privacy Watchdog
