Here is a handy list of things that HighSide servers, and therefore employees, can and cannot see. For more information, see our blog post How HighSide Works.


HighSide Can See

  • The IP of connected HighSide clients
  • The time that you connect and disconnect from the server
  • The sender and receiver of messages
  • The approximate size of messages or files
  • The names of groups

HighSide Cannot See

  • The content of messages
  • The content of files
  • The names of files

HighSide is not designed to be a platform for anonymous users and hacker groups – it is a tool for legitimate teams, businesses and organizations to conduct operations securely.
