Can the hosts read others private chat messages

No. In my experience:

  • Each participant who saves Chat gets a file of their own private messages plus the public messages (to everyone).
  • Any recording (Cloud or local) includes only the public messages.
  • Live during the meeting, each person can only see public messages and their own private messages. 

See this Zoom Support article for general information on saving Zoom Meeting Chats:

No. Like  Ray_Harwood said, you can hosts can only read their own private messages and public messages.

What about if the meeting is hosted on a private server? Isn’t it possible for the server owner ergo the meeting host to see a record of the private messages?

Sure, if the host has data separately stored and it’s not secured, someone else can get to it. But I don’t think that’s what we’re talking about. 

 

There’s no “private Zoom server.”  Even if you have an On-Premise Deployment at your location, it behaves according to Zoom rules – user and meeting metadata are still managed in the Zoom public cloud
