Zoom Sued for Allegedly Sharing Users' Personal Data

Zoom Sued for Allegedly Sharing Users' Personal Data Zoom Video Communications has seen a spike in popularity from the recent work-from-home movement due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The company is now facing scrutiny and lawsuits over its security practices and its handling of users' personal data.

A New York prosecutor is probing the popular teleconferencing company over its questionable security practices.

Zoom is also facing a lawsuit in California for allegedly sharing users' personal data to outside companies.

Zoom allegedly gave information to companies like Facebook without notifying users that it was doing so.

The lawsuit claims that Zoom gave information such as when users logged on to Zoom, the type of device used and the device's unique advertising identifier.

Zoom officials acknowledged its data sharing in blog posts and said they have changed the practice.
