Alert, Zoom Spread User Data to Facebook
Zoom apparently violates user privacy. The video call and online meeting based application sends user data without permission to Facebook, even though Zoom users do not have a Facebook account.
This is known after a report from a network analysis company, Motherboard. The report revealed that the data sent by Zoom to Facebook contained a number of personal information about users, as reported by Appleinsider, Friday (3/27).
The intended personal information is, what devices the user uses, what operators they use, the user's city and time zone location, which will be detected immediately when accessing Zoom. Later, the data will be collected to target ads according to the target.
