Can admins read your messages etc?

    I was wondering if admins can read messages you send to other people by
    "whispering" in the chat to another person. Or if you're in another channel if
    they somehow are able to listen to you even if they're not there. Does anyone

    Thanks in advance

    Text messages:
    - In the current stable 1.2.3 there is nothing that enables you to log text message, but Mumble is Open Source, so every provider could change the source code to enable logging.
    - In the current development version 1.2.4, there is a new callback named userTextMessage which a server provider could use to log all text messages on a Mumble-Server.

    A user with link permissions could link two or more channels to spy. In this
    case the linked channels appear in italic font.

    Thanks for the reply, but does this mean that we can see the italic font if
    the owner of the mumble server is listening to us? The thing is I'm sometimes
    helping another person in another channel with personal issues but our
    "leader" who owns the channel has got privacy issues, even though he's a good
    guy otherwise. I'm afraid he might spy on us because he has done so in the
    past by reading PM's on a forum etc.

    If your admin uses the regular linking feature of Mumble then everyone who is
    in one of these linked channels can see them in italic font.

    Unless, like with all the other things, the admin/server operator has modified
    the server. If what you're asking is if Mumble protects your privacy from
    untrustworthy server admins, the answer is no it does not.
