Zoom Security Issues Addressed – and a new easy to use alternative from Skype

  • There have been recent conerns about Zoom security, or, rather, the lack of it. Kudos to the company for rapidly mitigating them – Zoom has pretty well addressed all current security concerns posted. Passwords and waiting rooms for meetings will be turned on by default very soon (effective April 5th), even for the free tiers. This is to prevent zoombombing…the trend of disrupting meetings or sharing questionable content.
  • From video conferencing stalwart Skype comes news of a video call that doesn’t require you to sign up for an account to join the call. One  difference from Zoom is that the host doesn’t have to sign up for the service, or install anything. Skye states that “…Meet Now in Skype allows you to easily set up a collaboration space and invite both Skype contacts and friends or family who are not on Skype…” More details can be found here.
