Apparently Zoom straight up lied about conferences being E2E encrypted, and didn’t tell anyone that they were passing personally identifiable data to Facebook & Google for years.

They have just had their ass handed to them by the FTC, and members of a class action lawsuit will be receiving compensation. Also… maybe don’t use Zoom unless your employer makes you. 😬

@TrechNex And to think that they acquihired Keybase a year ago supposedly to implement strong E2EE in their products, and then they did nothing but publish a whitepaper. Meanwhile, Keybase development is stalled (only minor bugfixes on GitHub) and Zoom continues compulsively lying about its security and shares personal data without used's consent. They keep on lying!

@TrechNex $85 million dollars is nothing to Zoom. After this settlement they will probably just pretend they're working on it, remove some mentions of E2EE from their apps and when sued again, the cycle will repeat.
