Zoom not Safe: Government warns people on Video conference service

The Zoom meeting app is not a safe platform for video conference, the government today said, issuing a set of guidelines for the safety of private users who "still would like to use Zoom for a private purpose".

The guidelines, the government said, will prevent unauthorized entry in the conference room and even malicious activity by authorized participants on terminals of the other participants.

It would also avoid DOS attack by restricting users through passwords and access grant.

"Most of the settings can be done by login into users zoom account at website, or installed application at PC/Laptop/Phone and also during the conduct of the conference. However certain settings are possible through certain mode/channel only," the guidelines from the Union home ministry read.
