How do accounts work?

Every account on Yac requires OTP codes (One-Time PIN) for login and sign up. This prevents account spoofing along with removing the need for us to ever store authentication credentials on our servers. Each Yac account is a personal account capable of existing on multiple teams along with personal 1:1 relationships.

Your teams are private

Each Yac user can add unlimited 1:1 friends along with managing their own team in a robust admin panel.

What happens when I remove a team member from our team?

Removing a teammate from your Yac team will remove them from any default channels they were added to as well as unfriend them from any other users on the team. Their account will remain active but they will no longer have access to your team's messages. They will still be able to use the account with their own team or 1:1 Yac friends.

How do discussions work?

Every Yac team gets a standups, general, and random discussion. Your teammates are automatically added to these discussions and you are free to rename them as needed. Discussions do not have roles or permissions so anyone in a discussion can freely add or remove members as needed.

Everyone you talk to during your day.

Not everyone you talk to during your work day, works for your company.

Multi-team Communication

Divide your departments into teams. You can create siloed private groups in your team admin panel. Members on one team can yac with with each other, but cannot see members on other teams.

one to one communication

One-to-One Communication

Each Yac user can have one-to-one chats with their team members in private chats. Every user also gets a unique profile url they can share out for 1:1 friending on Yac.

team communication


Use discussions for topic based communication. For example, create a #design-feedback discussion and send screenshares back and forth. You can join and leave discussions as needed and you can invite other members to join discussions with shareable links. You gain access to historical messages from that discussion when you added to it.
