Let's answer some basic questions and concerns first.
Access to customer data is limited to authorized personnel who require it for their job and on a need-to-know basis. All personnel who access customer data do so pursuant to written agreements with data protection obligations consistent with applicable law.
All of our services and data are hosted in Amazon Web Services (AWS) facilities (S3, RDS) in the United States and Vultr dedicated servers in the United States.
Every service hosted on Yac’s servers is served over forced HTTPS only, with HTST enabled.
All apps give your team the option to opt out of any analytics. This deletes all your data from any 3rd party services and prevents future tracking.
All data sent to or from Yac is encrypted in transit using 256 bit encryption. Our APIs and application endpoints are TLS/SSl only. We only use strong cipher suites and have features such as HSTS enabled. We also encrypt data at rest using an industry-standard AES-256 encryption algorithm by making use of AWS’s RDS encryption.
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.
Each team on Yac has an admin panel at app.yac.com where you can add and remove team members, manage your billing, integrations, and your profile.
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.
Every Yac team gets a #standups, #general, and #random channel. Your teammates are automatically added to these channels and you are free to rename them as needed. Channels do not have roles or permissions so anyone in a channel can freely add or remove members as needed.
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.
Each Yac user can have one-to-one chats with their team members in private chats. Every user also gets a unique Yac.com profile url they can share out for 1:1 friending on Yac.
Use channels for topic based communication. For example, create a #design-feedback channel and share screenshares back and forth. You can join and leave channels as needed and you can invite other members to join channels with shareable links. You gain access to historical messages from that channel when you added to it.
