Should you be using Zoom?
With their fast, easy, efficient, free services, Zoom has become one of the top applications for video communications with over 300 million daily users.
Zoom’s popularity, however, has led them to be a big target for hackers and it has also revealed a lot of security issues associated with the application.
These issues revolve around privacy with false encryption on calls, abilities to record calls secretively, and Zoom bombing, which is essentially when someone can drop in on your call and spew unwarranted offensive content.
Most of these issues have been resolved, however, it appears Zoom’s preventative measures need work, as most issues are resolved after they affect the majority of users.

If this is the case, try using Signal, Whatsapp, or Microsoft Teams for a more secure video conferencing experience.
