At Slack, security is our top priority. We care about protecting your privacy and building a service you can trust. We’ve rounded up some tools to help Workspace Owners and Admins keep their workspace secure.
Note: If you have additional questions, or notice suspicious activity in your workspace, please contact us — we’d be happy to help.
Set up two-factor authentication
Two-factor authentication (2FA) is an extra layer of sign-in security. With 2FA enabled, members enter a verification code from their mobile device in addition to their Slack password. Using 2FA ensures that even if a password is compromised, access to Slack won’t be granted unless the person signing in is verified from their device.
Note:For internal integrations built by your team, treat the tokens you generate carefully, and never share tokens with other people or applications. Read how to connect your tools to Slack.
Limit access to your workspace
Slack allows for transparency, and sometimes that means sharing proprietary information or sensitive details. Here are some tips to ensure only the right people have access to information in your workspace:
Only invite people you know For total control, keep the default setting to only let Workspace Owners and Admins send invitations to new members. If you do allow others to send invites, review pending and accepted invitations periodically.
Deactivate members’ accounts who no longer need access Change is constant, and people come and go. Don’t forget to deactivate a member’s account when they leave. Workspace Owners on the Business+ and Enterprise Grid plans can streamline deactivation with an identity provider using SCIM provisioning.
Add people from other companies to a channel To work with external partners who don’t need access to all the information in your workspace, you can use Slack Connect to invite them to channels. This lets you collaborate securely and productively in one centralized place, all from your own workspaces.
Use guest accounts and limit the channels they're invited to Some members of your Slack workspace (like contractors, interns, or clients) may only need access to certain channels. Guest accounts are a great way to manage who has access to the information they need in your workspace.
Manage email display Members can find each others' email addresses in their profiles, but some people may prefer to keep this info private. Workspace Owners and Admins can choose if members’ email addresses are displayed in their Slack profiles.
Set session duration
On the Pro, Business+, and Enterprise Grid plans, owners and admins can limit how long their members are signed in to Slack on desktop by setting a session duration.
