Zoom announces 90-day feature freeze to address privacy and security concerns


Zoom’s recent growth has brought it to the fore on a range of privacy and security issues, and the company now promises to resolve them within the next 90 days. In a detailed blog post, Zoom CEO Eric S. Yuan explains how the company has responded to a massive increase in the number of users. Zoom has never shared user numbers before, but Yuan says the company had a maximum of 10 million daily users in December. “In March of this year, we reached over 200 million daily meeting attendees, free and paid,” says Yuan.

It’s a huge increase that has seen people using Zoom for reasons that no one expected before the coronavirus pandemic. “Our platform was designed primarily for businesses,” says Yuan. “We did not design the product with the foresight that, in a few weeks, everyone in the world could suddenly work, study and socialize from home. We now have a much wider user base that uses our product in a myriad of unexpected ways, presenting us with challenges that we did not anticipate when the platform was designed. “
