New event visual notification popup decrypts and displays text from secure chat session unexpectedly

Reported by: venomtoad@… Owned by: asterix

Component: chat Version:
Severity: major Keywords: visual notification encrypted popup

Blocking: OS: All


When a new message is received from an encrypted chat session while the new event visual notification popup option is enabled, the message is automatically decrypted and displayed on the screen. This could present a security hazard due to the text being displayed on the screen unexpectedly. I would like to see an option added to disable decrypted text from being shown on the screen when there is not a chat box open.

Then, you can simply remove notifications if you think this can be a problem. This is not limited to encrypted message, if someone say something that is not safe to be viewed by other, then you should disable the notification before.

I don't like that preview of the message in notify popup, too. But I don't want to miss a pop-up notification. I can't find an option to disable just the preview. Is it possible to add an option "Show preview in popup" or something like that? And if I disable it I will only see a popup with "a new message arrived from xxx"...
