Desktop notification: hide text

#1

Hi.

In desktop notifications (from website, not apps) I’d like to remove the message text, for privacy reasons: say I’m working at my desk with someone and I don’t want them to read my messages which appear in notifications.

I did some search, here and on github, but I didn’t find a way to disable (like you do for mobile notifications!). Is it correct? If true, where should I raise the problem? Is Github issue ok?

thanks

Hi @maxxer

You need to turn off the notifications in your browser settings.

Firefox

I do want notifications, but without the text! Maybe just with the channel name
