My company uses Google Apps for all employees, so all have [email protected] as their official email address. I understand that there would be an admin for the Google Apps.

Can the admin monitor/track the chat history of employees of the company?

  • Yes; The admin can simply reset the account's password.

  • @Ramhound : Thanks. But my question was whether the admin will have the privilege to monitor/track the chat history of other users ?

The Google Apps Email Audit API allows Google Apps administrators to audit a user's email, email drafts, and archived chats. In addition, a domain administrator can retrieve account login information and download a user's mailbox.
