Zoom and Zoom Alternatives

04.06.20 07:03 AM Comment(s)

Zoom has gotten a lot of crap lately for their less-than stellar privacy settings, creeper settings, and security configurations. So here's a brief summary of my thoughts when to use Zoom, when to use an alternative, and some suggested alternatives. 

When to use Zoom

    • Casual Conversations
    • Information you're okay with being publicly available
    • For School/Classes you're attending
    • Your boss is asking you to

When NOT to use Zoom

    • You're a government entity
    • You're a government contractor
    • You're discussing trade secrets​ you don't want China to know about
    • You already have a Microsoft Teams account
