Privacy issues are often a low priority for companies, especially as they grow as quickly as Zoom. Zoom went public last year and has already doubled in value.

It has clearly given some thought to its data protection policies and procedures and is now trying to address issues as they come to light, although this is undoubtedly too late. For example, after it was revealed that Zoom was sharing some of its users’ personal data with Facebook, it immediately stopped this. However, its problems are multiplying. German data protection authorities are eyeing an investigation as it is revealed that users’ emails and other personal data are accidentally being leaked to malicious actors, putting Zoom at risk of significant fines being issued against them.
