Where is my messages stored?
Websocket servers not storing any messages itself, all messages stored only in your website database.
Websocket servers used only as transitional servers to transmit data in realtime and storing only some required to function data.
The messages content and other private data are encrypted at your website side and decrypted in realtime at user end. So its not possible to read the messages by us even if we want to do that.
Websocket servers DO store next data:
- User IDs
- Thread IDs
- Message IDs
- Unread Messages Count by Thread IDs
- Messages Delivery Statuses by Message IDs
- Licensed website domains, for example ( wordplus.org )
WebSocket servers DO NOT store anything else.
When you need more privacy, you need upgrade to Self Hosted Plan.
