Zoom Video Conferencing Alert

With a lot of us now spending more time at home but still wanting to stay in touch with co-workers, family, and friends, the free video conferencing platform Zoom has recently received a lot of attention.

I’m hearing a lot of questions asking how something that looks this good can really be free. ALWAYS a good question. Everyone should be cautious and aware that Zoom isn’t really ready for prime time yet.

Their platform is full of holes. Important security holes. They’ve admitted it and are working to fix things but it’s gonna be a long time until it’s anywhere near acceptable vis-à-vis privacy, encryption, and breach security.

Truth is, most everyone already has a bullet-proof solution in Facetime or Skype. For now, stick with them!
