During National Lockdown citizens of our country are using this application for video conferencing and chatting all over the country. School, colleges are using the app for conducting lectures, Business meetings are also taking place through this app.
But on the other side application is not providing any end to end encryption as safety features. The video conferencing is easily hacked. Many cases are being noted all over the world as during lectures or any other video conferencing, any unwanted activities are being observed and sites are also being hacked. It was also noted that some ransom emails are sent by zoom. The information can be taken to exploit the people as young children to are also using zoom because of online teaching.
