Zoom Class Action Settlement, Get Up to $25
A lawsuit has been filed against Zoom accusing the company of unauthorized sharing of users’ information with third parties, failure to prevent unwanted meeting disruptions by third parties, and misrepresentations that Zoom provides end-to-end encryption at a time when Plaintiffs allege Zoom did not. Plaintiffs claim that such alleged conduct violated California state and federal laws. Zoom denies these allegations and denies any liability whatsoever.
The Court did not decide in favor of the Plaintiffs or Zoom. Instead, both sides have agreed to the Settlement. Both sides want to avoid the risk and cost of further litigation. Plaintiffs and Class Counsel also believe that the Settlement is in the best interests of the Settlement Class.
You are a member of the Settlement Class if you are in the United States and, between March 30, 2016, and July 30, 2021, you registered, used, opened, or downloaded the Zoom Meetings Application (“App”), unless an exception applies. For more detail on whether an exception applies to you, please see FAQ 6.
If you only used Zoom through an Enterprise-Level Account or a Zoom for Government Account between March 30, 2016 and July 30, 2021 you are excluded from the proposed Settlement Class.

If the Court approves the Settlement, Zoom will pay $85 million to create a Settlement Fund. The money remaining in the Settlement Fund after paying settlement administration and notice costs, the award of attorneys’ fees and expenses to Class Counsel by the Court (“Fee and Expense Award”), and any Service Payments to Plaintiffs ordered by the Court, is called the “Net Settlement Fund.” The Net Settlement Fund will be distributed to Settlement Class Members who submit a valid Claim Form on or before March 5, 2022.
Eligible Settlement Class Members can submit a Claim Form for the following claims:
- Paid Subscription Claim: If you are a Class Member who paid for a Zoom Meetings App subscription between March 30, 2016, and July 30, 2021, you are eligible to file a claim for $25 or 15% of the money you paid to Zoom for the core App subscription (i.e., not including optional add-on features/support that customers may add to their subscriptions) during that time, whichever is greater.
- For example, if you spent $75 on a Zoom Meetings App subscription during the relevant time period, 15% of $75 is $11.25. Because $11.25 is less than $25, your claim will be treated as a claim for $25.
- User Claim: If you registered, used, opened, or downloaded the Zoom Meeting App between March 30, 2016, and July 30, 2021, and you are not eligible to submit a Paid Subscription Claim, you are eligible to file a claim for $15.
