Zoom的人气飙升是一把双刃剑

随着在美国冠状病毒大流行的加剧,Zoom Video Communications提供了免费使用其视频会议平台的服务,需求激增。 KnowBe4的安全意识倡导者James McQuiggan说:“在COVID-19大流行期间,Zoom已迅速成为电话会议的事实。” 他告诉《电子商务时报》:“许多组织正在使用它与员工保持联系。” 成功有其代价 但是,自从引起人们的关注以来,Zoom就其隐私实践引起了广泛的批评。 根据主板的说法,使用Facebook SDK开发的Zoom的iOS应用可以与Facebook共享分析数据而不会通知用户。它提供了有关用户是否拥有Facebook帐户的信息。 哈佛大学伯克曼互联网与社会研究中心的校友,《线索列车宣言》的四位作者之一Doc Searls写道,Zoom的隐私权政策“对基于跟踪的广告业务非常恼火”。 他观察到:“ Zoom从事广告业务,最糟糕的是:它依靠收集到的个人数据为生。” “让这次特别令人毛骨悚然的是,Zoom能够收集大量的个人数据,其中一些数据非常私密。” Enderle Group首席分析师Rob Enderle说,在提到Facebook数据共享时,Zoom“有义务向其用户披露该信息。” 他告诉《电子商务时报》:“ Facebook在保护用户隐私方面存在许多重大问题。对于许多人而言,避免使用与Facebook共享数据的应用程序将是审慎的做法。”

原文:As the coronavirus pandemic worsened in the U.S., Zoom Video Communications offered free access to its videoconferencing platform and demand skyrocketed.

"Zoom has quickly become the de facto for teleconferencing during the COVID-19 pandemic," said James McQuiggan, security awareness advocate at KnowBe4.

"A lot of organizations are using it to keep in contact with their employees," he told the E-Commerce Times.

However, since entering the spotlight, Zoom has drawn heavy criticism for its privacy practices.

Zoom's iOS app, created with Facebook's SDKshared analytics data with Facebook without informing users, according to Motherboard. It provided information about users whether they had a Facebook account or not.

Zoom's privacy policy "is creepily chummy with the tracking-based advertising business," wrote Doc Searls, alumnus fellow of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University, and one of the four authors of The Cluetrain Manifesto.

"Zoom is in the advertising business, and in the worst end of it: the one that lives off harvested personal data," he observed. "What makes this extra creepy is that Zoom is in a position to gather plenty of personal data, some of it very intimate."

Referring to the Facebook data sharing, Zoom "had an obligation to disclose that to its users," said Rob Enderle, principal analyst at the Enderle Group.

"Facebook has had many significant issues regarding protecting user privacy. For many, avoiding an application that shared data with Facebook would have been prudent," he told the E-Commerce Times.
