Can other hipchat group members anyway see one-to-one chat history

Hi Pranish,

Assuming that they are having a direct 1-1 message (and not chatting in a public/private room), nobody but those two people will ever see the message history. If you're in HipChat Cloud, even administrators will not be able to pull the history up in an export.

Administrators of HipChat Server have the capability of retrieving 1-1 messages, but it's not as simple as just going and looking at history in the web interface.

Hope that helps!

Daniel explained the 1-1 chat privacy very well. Here is how it works in private and public rooms.
  • Person A and person B are the only members of a public or private room and they are having a conversation there
  • Person C is invited to and joins the room
  • Person C can now see all of the conversation history that person A and B had before C joined the room.
