Can github access content in private repositories?

Solved! Go to Solution.

Hello all,

 

can owners and/or developers of github access the content of users' private repositories, e.g. reading it? What is the state of data privacy?

 

Greetings,

DK

Not unless you specifically consent to them viewing the content. For example one time I needed support on a private repo, they needed me to approve their request to actually be granted temporary access. Just don’t do anything you wouldn’t want law enforcement to see ;)

That's a good summary. There are a lot of additional details on the GitHub Privacy Statement page.
