Manage link previews for your workspace

When someone shares a link in your workspace, other members will see a text preview of the web page attached to the message. Workspace owners and admins can turn off previews for specific URLs and domains. When links to these websites are shared in Slack, a text preview won’t expand.


Turn off previews for specific sites

  1. Hover over a link shared in the desktop app.
  2. Click the  close icon in the top left to remove the attachment.
  3. Tick the box next to Disable future attachments from this website, then click Yes, remove to confirm.
