Hello Fighters,

tl;dr: Major Chat update went live: The chat supports offline messages now.

Chat update

  • You can reopen any conversation even if the member is currently offline. (refer to the new "Recent conversations" button in the chat interface)
  • You can send chat messages if the receiver is offline – (if you had a conversation in the past 7 days with that person).
  • If you received a chat message while you were offline, the tab will automatically open on your next Chat-login.
  • You can access your private chat conversations for the last 7 days.
    • You can sort for days and message lines in your recent conversations.
  • You can 'pin' conversations by leaving them open in a tab. It will now follow you when you switch devices.

It seems like a good new feature , as long as, the conversations remain private ; well done.

But everything is driven in the direction of retention of data! Not good.

Can you elaborate on why this worries you?

If you use gmail, you know that google keeps your messages forever, even when you think you deleted them. They share your data with advertisers to target you, train AI, whatever else. We only keep the chat history because this was a frequently requested feature of convenience, and your stuff is gone in a few days. Apple, Facebook, Alibaba, Wechat and others collect and retain your data and use it to build a profile of you to use both for and against you, to sell and to share with governments when so required.
So what is it about MF chat that is not used for any of those things?

This is why we are not using google analytics, which is basically on any other website. We also don't use social media 'LIKE' buttons as the main purpose is to collect personal data. - Even if you don't hit the like, simply providing the button collects your data already.

MF respected your privacy long before it became a 'hot topic'.
Recently, we added even more privacy settings, and we keep adding new ones.
If you check our Privacy Page, you see that we are not sharing any data with anyone when some other sites have endless privacy policies.

Our chat is simple. If you don't use the chat, it does not store anything. And after seven days, it is gone.
