Zoom accused of violating rules for processing confidential information
Robert Cullen, a resident of Sacramento, California, has sued video conferencing service Zoom Video Communications for disclosing confidential information to third parties.
In a statement by Cullen filed Monday by the San Jose Federal Court, it stated that when you install or open a service without the user’s knowledge, it transfers information about it to third parties, e.g. For, Facebook.
Zoom has become particularly popular between the coronovirus epidemic and the transition of company employees to remote work from around the world. As a result, the service’s share price has more than doubled since the beginning of the year following an outbreak of the disease caused by the new coronovirus. Meanwhile, Zoom founder Eric Yuan is on the Forbes list with a fortune of $ 6.5 billion.
Zoom is a service for video conferencing and online meetings. Any user who has created an account can arrange a meeting. The free version of the program allows you to have a video conference lasting up to 40 minutes, but the service removed this limit for the duration of an epidemic.
Also the zoom software has an “attention tracking” option. This tool meets participants who did not open the zoom or deploy the program on top of other windows for more than 30 seconds.
