Zoom has become a video calling software sensation because of the pandemic. It’s free and easy to use, which has helped it become successful, but those same benefits also introduce security and privacy risks.

Hi everyone, we wanted to acknowledge the audio quality on this video. We know it isn't the best! Apologies in advance - our team is working remotely, and we don’t have all of our normal resources.

No apologies needed it's understandable given the situation! But I have a correction to your video: facetime requires you to have an apple id AND an Apple product! You also forgot to mention Google Duo (with end-to-end encription) and Google Meet.

I'm proud that my home country still uses Skype. From the everyday Joe to school teachers, your broker and even the Hungarian press, every single person in Hungary uses Skype like it's 2009. At least your data stays at Microsoft with it and there's no such thing on Skype as Skype bombing (aka. prank calls).

Well, you didn't mention what happen if you try other video conference software with 100 people. Most of them just don't work at large scale. So far only Zoom works in such an efficient way. It can take 100 of people conference easily. It can also use just old 4G network with 5 people international video call without lagging. At the same time, it use very little CPU and network resource while maintain a good quality.

RE Zoombombing: A couple of issues. One is people letting other people have a room number. The other is users DISABLING protective features. If you require potential room members to go through the WAITING ROOM and simply not approve anybody who wasn't invited, you will have no Zoombombing. Also - if you require a password and set it to be included in ONLY THE INVITEES' invitations, that increases security, keeping intruders out.

Hello there. Personally, I am paying for Zoom, because of its accessibility. You see, a lot of these other video apps aren’t as accessible to blind/low vision users as Zoom is. If Zoom is going to tighten their usability settings, I certainly hope that we aren’t going to see a broken application.

Zoom's servers are in communist china and the calls are not encrypted. If you know anything about communist china and how they look into all digital data, you can be the communist party is monitoring what we are all talking about. This is why the country of Taiwan, Tesla and Space-X among other large high profile companies and countries have stopped using it.

Please no one trust Zoom. They have major ties to China which is a huge cause for concern. It is also very concerning that The Verge failed to mention that in this video. Stay informed people and dont trade your personal data to China for anything.

Everything you described Zoom, Skype, Teams, Facebook all those are not applications, they are services running on a server somewhere, that costs money to run . If you are not paying with money, you paying for it in some other way. It's called SAS software as a service. There aren't many applications left, Application is something like the calculator, the calculator doesn't need internet to run its local, you buy it once and it's forever on your device. Some years ago companies discovered that they can make everything SAS so they can milking you at a monthly basis, even videogames belong to this category now.

There may be some valuable information in this video, but the lack of knowledge and skill to handle basic audio technique has a negative impact on the integrity of the presentation. This should not have been published in such poor quality. Viewer confidence suffers. It's too difficult to endure even two minutes in this form. Please correct the quality and maybe viewers will give it another consideration. Sorry, but that's the simple truth. Viewers expect better. Good luck.
