Zoom says free users won’t get end-to-end encryption so FBI and police can access calls – The Verge

Adi Robertson:

“We think this feature should be a part of our offering” for professional customers, said Zoom CEO Eric Yuan in a meeting with investors Tuesday. “Free users — for sure we don’t want to give [them] that, because we also want to work together with the FBI, with local law enforcement, in case some people use Zoom for a bad purpose.”

Unacceptable but unsurprising stance from Zoom, a company with a history of privacy abuses. I’d stop using it entirely, but the businesses I work for/with rely heavily on it. I’m considering siloing it and some other questionable software on a machine that contains no personal data.
