April 1, 2020 - Zoom Update

On April 1, 2020, Zoom Founder and CEO, Eric S. Yuan published a blog summarizing Zoom’s unprecedented growth, missteps and corrections, including:

  • A summary of training materials
  • Enhanced security controls to deter Zoombombing, such as waiting rooms, passwords, muting controls, and limiting screen sharing
  • Removal of the Facebook SDK iOS connection
  • Updated Privacy Policy
  • Published administration guides for various audiences
  • Clarified their encryption platform and implemented various fixes 
  • Removed the attendee attention tracker feature and LinkedIn Sales Navigator app

Zoom committed to take many measures and increased resources over the 90 days following this post, which includes enhancing their bug bounty program, implementing white box penetration tests, and a weekly webinar to discuss privacy and security updates.
