Group Privacy

Anyone can create or be added to a chat with more than two people (“Group”) in Marco Polo.

The creator of a Group automatically becomes the Group Admin and, by default, anyone in the Group can add or remove anyone else in the Group, or duplicate the Group.

Group Admins have the ability to:

  • Create a unique group share link (anyone who has the unique group share link can join the Group)
  • Make someone a Group Admin
  • Set the welcome message
  • Restrict the Group (described further below)

One or more people can be a Group Admin 🙂

Group Admins also have the ability to delete content for all members of the Group.

The Group Admin can do this by: 

1. Hold down on a Polo thumbnail
2. Select Remove
3. Select “remove for me only” or “remove for all group members."

If a Group Admin selects “remove for all members,” this will delete the Polo from our Service.

Within the Group Info Section of the App, we provide group settings to restrict a Group. When the Restrict a Group feature is enabled, only Admins can (members cannot) edit the group name or chat tile, or add or remove members.

☝️If the Group Admin leaves the Group, another Group Admin is not automatically designated. Group Admins must add another Admin before leaving the group in order for there to be an Admin of the Group.
