The founder and CEO of Zoom, Eric Yuan has apologized to the video conferencing app’s millions of users after coming under fire for a host of privacy issues at a time when it has emerged as a vital social and professional lifeline for many.
“We recognize that we have fallen short of the community’s — and our own — privacy and security expectations,” Eric Yuan said. “For that, I am deeply sorry.” Zoom crossed 200 million daily meeting participants in the month of March.
New features will not be added for the next 90 days and instead will focus solely on addressing privacy issues, Yuan said.
