Zoom — Great Tech, Iffy Privacy

Doc Searls on

If you were in a browser instead of an app, an extension such as Privacy Badger could tell you there are trackers sniffing your ass. And, if your browser is one that cares about privacy, such as Brave, Firefox or Safari, there’s a good chance it would be blocking trackers as well. But in the Zoom app, you can’t tell if or how your personal data is being harvested.

After the last year’s Mac hidden web server case, we officially discourage Zoom’s use at work. Currently I use Zoom Redirector to force the web client.
