Can employers see your convos if you use iMessage on a company MacBook? I know for iOS it’s encrypted, so what about for MacBooks?

    Yes, they can possibly read your messages. Depends on what endpoint security software / MDM they have installed. Keep in mind on any employer owned device they can have up to full keystroke recording and even video recording / screenshotting. Knowing Amazon’s reputation, I would tread carefully.

      iMessage is encrypted.
      In newer version of Mac, keystroke recording softwares have to ask for your permission. So no worry they cannot

      Video recording? Wtf. What if I’m working on something in my room and happen to get changed or something.

      That is 100% inaccurate. Your messages are stored in a sqlite DB on disk. IT has access to everything on that disk so it is trivial to read everything that the Messages client has seen.
