Welcome to IWETHEY!

New A reply by the CEO
"First, some background: our platform was built primarily for enterprise customers – large institutions with full IT support. ....

However, we did not design the product with the foresight that, in a matter of weeks, every person in the world would suddenly be working, studying, and socializing from home. We now have a much broader set of users who are utilizing our product in a myriad of unexpected ways, presenting us with challenges we did not anticipate when the platform was conceived. "

New And a few other things
https://www.theregister.co.uk/2020/04/01/zoom_spotlight/

the company has been forced to admit that although it explicitly gives users the option to hold an “end-to-end encrypted” conversation and touts end-to-end encryption as a key feature of its service, in fact it offers no such thing.
because
Zoom granted itself the right to mine your personal data and conference calls to target you with ads, and seemed to have a "creepily chummy" relationship with tracking-based advertisers.
Personal information gathered by the company included, but was not limited to, names, addresses and any other identifying data, job titles and employers, Facebook profiles, and device specifications. It also included "the content contained in cloud recordings, and instant messages, files, whiteboards ... shared while using the service."
and
Zoom's iOS app sent analytics data to Facebook even if you didn't use Facebook to sign into Zoom
Oh, can't let Windows users feel left out:
you can snaffle people's Windows local login usernames and hashed passwords via Zoom by getting them to click on a URL in a chat message that connects to a malicious SMB file server.


Lawsuits are flying and do appear to have some effect. The iOS/Facebook diversion was stopped and they now pinky promise not to sell the harvested information.

Still best to keep way more than 6' separation...
New But they have background replace!

New Big deal. :-)
Apps have appeared that can do that and appear as another "camera" for any other video conferencing app. Some of my colleagues have been using it with BlueJeans.

Perfectly clear, if you swallow the right mushrooms and squint your eyes just right.
