Why Slack?

Slack is a great way to receive downtime notifications because:

It's super fast - once sent, Slack notifications are received almost instantly (email can take a few minutes).

It's great for teams - when a downtime alert is sent, everyone signed-up to the Slack channel will be notified.

Total Privacy

At Downtime Monkey your privacy is critically important to us.

Our Slack App only asks for the minimum permissions that it needs to work: to confirm a user's Slack workspace and post to a specific channel on Slack.

We can't view any of your Slack messages... and we don't want to!
