Update: Zoom Promises It Won’t Use Your Data for AI Training Without Permission

  • Zoom, like seemingly everyone else, has recently started a push into AI on its platform.
  • The latest terms of service suggest the company will use your data to train these models without an apparent way to opt out.
  • Given the potentially sensitive nature of data transferred through Zoom this could pose security and privacy risks, particularly in enterprise.

This is a reason, whenever I look for a piece of software, I first look for open source one. If there's no open source one, then I choose closed source software according to the documentation, terms of use and privacy policy. Choosing the most popular software because it's most popular is just plainly wrong.

Unfortunately it’s not always possible in a workplace environment. Employees get no choice in the matter and are forced to use whatever the companies opts for.
