#Zoom video service shares data with Facebook, class action lawsuit alleges

Zoom Video Communications, Inc. is facing a proposed class action lawsuit that alleges the video conferencing platform shares user data with Facebook and other third parties without adequate notice.

Zoom use has skyrocketed in recent weeks due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The lawsuit alleges that although the company claims to be compliant with regulations safeguarding users’ privacy and personal data, such statements are false given that the video platform’s design and security measures are flawed.

The lawsuit further claims that Zoom has failed to disclose to users that their information is being shared with third parties, a privacy violation.

Zoom being used for domainer socials such as Michael Cyger’s Domain Name Quarantine.

According to a report included in the lawsuit, the Zoom app notifies Facebook when a user, even one without a Facebook account, opens Zoom. The report claims that Zoom shares details such as a user’s device model, time zone, city, and phone carrier, along with a unique identifier that companies can use for targeted advertising.

Zoom Video Communications, acquired the domain Zoom.com, in 2018 for $2 million dollars. The deal involved selling this domain name asset, previously acquired by James and Andy Booth. The domain forwards to Zoom.US.
