Multiple cities and counties ban Zoom in schools and city official meetings

After weeks of massive user growth in Zoom, security concerns was on the spotlight after users raised a series of privacy concerns. Incidents such as ’Zoombombing’ rose ever since schools (K-12 and universities) have adopted them in their curriculum where bad actors who have access to the meeting codes can pop-up in private meetings or virtual classes and even record conversations.

They obviously don’t know how to use zoom. There are things that hosts can do to prevent zoombombers.

Instead of requiring passwords on meetings.. a ban is about right for a government response.

I mean, some crazy stuff happened, sure. But mostly useless courses are angry that their uselessness is being exposed.

Ok, we don't post the zoom codes on social media. We send then in emails, texts, or private chat. This should be obvious to anyone that is functionaly literate, but I guess what should be and what is, do not always correlate.

Home schooling will take a big bump during and after this. Progressives can try and stop the wave but it is here.

Because, without government, who would poison the wells?

I think it is more of the Women Studies course and feminist classes that are concerned that their class bubbles will be broken and people can see what they are teaching.

If they banned due of lack of end to end encryption.. then I would understand, but they only referenced zoombombing. They are essentially the man in the middle able to capture everything in clear text. That argument would be valid.

Yikes. I do 1 on 1 meetings on zoom. She just emails me the link... why is that so complicated? Especially when there are children being put at risk.

Zoom is owned by China. So yeah, there is probably the source of your issues.

Is zoom a victim of competitor smear campaign maybe from Microsoft teams?

We'll go back to our good, safe, heavy, opaque projectors. Way easier than teaching everyone "paswurds", whatever those are.

You people don't seem to understand, students don't give a shit about boring classes so they give the passwords to their friends who come in and raid the class. Not that hard to figure out.
