Zoom adds new security, privacy features amid concerns

Apr 05, 2020 18:00 IST

Video conferencing app Zoom is improving its security settings for a more secure interaction after facing backlash for its many privacy and security issues. The app now requires passwords if a user tries to enter a meeting using just the meeting ID instead of the meeting invite link. It is also enabling the ‘Waiting Room’ feature by default, which now allows the host to manually control who joins the meeting. This comes after the so-called ‘Zoombombing’ incidents when people intrude on meetings and digital classes and even bombard chat participants with offensive content.
