Zoom has become the most popular app for video conference amongst people. Teenagers use this app to chat with their friends and Professionals use this to conduct conferences with their employees.

But why zoom?
Zoom became popular because on this app more than 4 individual can join the video conference. At a time, which became much easier to connect with a large number of people. Though the zoom is a popular app, still it doesn’t have the basic security feature i.e., End-to-End Encryption. The company have even admitted that they have also placed a server in China.
Because of its privacy & security issues and lack of End-to-End Encryption with one server placed in China, US Law Enforcement (FBI) and Law Enforcement of various other countries like Taiwan, Spain, Italy have launched a warning against this app in public. To remain safe from this app, companies like SpaceX and Google have completely banned their employees from using this app, by saying none of our employees should use this app for any video conference, instead they suggested using Skype which is more secured.
