Private comments are available on PageProof Enterprise.

A comment or reply can be made private by team members – a private comment is only visible to members of the team.

Before you begin using private comments, we recommend team administrators visit team members and ensure they are happy with those users listed as part of the team. Team administrators can enable the private comments feature under the team settings for proofs.
