Note Pad Private Message
Hi, I’m looking to set up secret chat on notepad. If the user I invite is sharing icloud with someone, will they be able to see the chat?
Notepad++ does not have a chat feature. It is a text editor. It is not the right platform for a private/encrypted/secret chat, and if that’s what you’re thinking, it doesn’t make sense.
The “Forum private message” post you linked to was talking about a direct-message feature for this forum (aka “chat” aka “private message”) – at the time of that discussion, there was no such feature in this forum, but it has since been added. But that feature is just for doing a quick message to someone in this forum, it’s not a generic chat application made for connecting random people; it’s a way for members of this forum to communicate outside of just posts. You should not be planning to use that feature of this Forum as a generic private/secret chat with someone else who isn’t part of the Notepad++ text-editor community. It is not guaranteed secure; it is not something for general users to sign up for just to use “private chat” with each other; it is not a competitor to WhatsApp and similar applications; it is a chat for members of this Forum, where a member of this forum is anyone who wants to publically discuss Notepad++ and/or help answer the many questions that are asked here; the direct-message feature is not the primary purpose of this forum, and if it starts getting abused, the host is likely to turn it off an not allow us to continue to use it. Please do not abuse this feature.
