Interesting. I did a search on "privacy problems with zoom" And got several hits. Has anyone done any other exploration on this matter and how to circumvent these concerns?

Be very cautious with zoom, and note it’s snarky privacy policy which acknowledges they sell data about you . . .

I had to use it yesterday for a nonprofit board meeting.   I created a throw-away user account.  I found that it could *not* run in TOR, and had to settle for a private safari window.

And it *did* attempt to access my downloads folder!  (OSX caught this).

They have also in the past deliberately circumvented apple’s tulles to install a malware web browser to avoid getting permission to use the camera—and third parties compromised machines with this.
