Re: Bravo Zoon!

Hmmm, is this the same Zoom that bypassed browser security settings, fobbed off users' details to Facebook without permission, lied about (and doubled down on) their end-to-end encryption, routed data through servers in China (to which, as I understand it, Chinese government authorities have all-access passes), and wanted to build FBI backdoors into its no-fee version (can not recall if they were actually built or not)? That Zoom? In fairness, these, um, "mistakes" were fixed when pointed out (although I have not read the T's and C's and can not say what, if anything, still lurks therein), and any company will have growing pains when expanding from small to ginormous at the speed of pandemic lockdown orders. However, too many anti-user decisions (does anyone accidentally bypass browser security settings?) in a relatively short time has put them off my "trustworthy" list. Obviously, others will feel differently about the matter, given their meeting requirements and other constraints.

Not that Google and Microsoft are on the side of the angels, either.
