Hide message previews on notifications

If you’re an administrator of Hipchat Server in fields such as defense (think ITAR), healthcare, or finance, you probably don’t want unauthorized people “shoulder surfing” and seeing Hipchat messages in notifications. Hipchat Server gives you a setting to suppress those message previews.

Disable message previews

To disable message previews in the notifications, go to Group admin > Preferences. To hide messages, go to Scrubbed Notification Messages and select On.


Here are some examples of notifications with and without message previews:

  1. Mobile notification with preview
  2. Mobile notification without preview

  1. Email notification with preview
  2. Email notification without preview

For more about notification types, see Get and set notifications.
