As a move to address the privacy and security concerns raised by users over the past weeks, Zoom video communications revealed that it has added over 100 features to its video conferencing platform. The announcement also details progress made to the transformation reports which entails information related to requests Zoom receives for records, data or content. The report is said to be out later this year with details on governmental requests for its users’ account information.
Part of these upgrades include a 90-day security plan to fully address the privacy and security issues that have been reported by users. The company also hired several security experts, including former Facebook security chief Alex Stamos as an adviser for this purpose.
Part of the plan is to also offer end-to-end encryption for video calls to both free and paying users and launch a trial version in July.
