Zoom Lawsuit Over Personal Data Disclosure
A lawsuit has been filed against Zoom Video Communications, claiming the popular video-conferencing service is illegally disclosing personal information.
Zoom has been one of the most successful companies during the coronavirus outbreak as people work from home or use the video-conferencing software while practicing social distancing.
The lawsuit came after a report from the publication Motherboard which was first to reveal that Zoom’s IOS app was sharing data with Facebook, even if users didn’t have a Faveook account. Zoom said that it removed the code after that.
The case is Cullen v. Zoom Video Communications, No. 20-cv-02155, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California (San Jose).
