Zoom buys security company, aims for end-to-end encryption

As the coronavirus pandemic forced millions of people to stay home over the past two months, Zoom suddenly became the video meeting service of choice: Daily meeting participants on the platform surged from 10 million in December to 200 million in March, and 300 million daily meeting participants in April

With that popularity came Zoom's privacy risks extending rapidly to massive numbers of people. From built-in attention-tracking features to recent upticks in "Zoombombing" (in which uninvited attendees break in and disrupt meetings, often with hate-filled or pornographic content), the company's security practices have been drawing more attention -- along with at least three lawsuits.
