Security & Privacy

Are my organisational data and activities secure when integrating Slack and Discord with Coinshift?
Yes, your data security is a priority. When you integrate Coinshift with Slack or Discord, the application only receives permissions to send notifications. It does not gain access to your personal or organisational details, ensuring the confidentiality and security of your information.
How can I disable notifications for my Coinshift account or organisation on Slack or Discord?
If you decide not to receive notifications on Slack or Discord, you can easily disconnect it. Refer to the steps provided in the linked article to achieve the disconnection process for either Slack, Discord, or both platforms. Ensure you follow the steps thoroughly to guarantee a complete disconnection.
Can other members of my Slack workspace or Discord server see my Coinshift notifications?
Coinshift notifications are specific to individual integrations. Every Signer/Member who wants to receive these notifications needs to set up the integration from their own dashboard. Notifications will be visible in the channels where they are directed. If you are an admin, think carefully about where you send these notifications. To ensure privacy and limit visibility, restrict the channel only to the eligible Signers/Members. If you want to keep things extra private, use private channels.


I encountered an error stating “Something went wrong while authorising this app” when trying to set up Slack notifications for my Coinshift organisations or accounts. What should I do?
To set up Slack notifications with Coinshift, users need to ensure they've granted permission for external apps to be installed in their Slack workspace. Check your Slack settings and allow the integration.
