Zoom grows to 300 million users despite security backlash
Zoomhas hit the headlines for a rising number of privacy and security concerns, but it does not seem to have stopped people from clinging to the video conferencing program. Zoom has now revealed that it’s surpassed 300 million Zoom meeting participants. That is up 50 percent that the company reported and a jump from the 10 million back in December.
Zoom does say that the figures are daily meeting participants, which could mean if you’ve got five Zoom meetings during a day then you are counted five occasions. However, Zoom also states in the identical blog post that it has”more than 300 million daily users” which”over 300 million people around the globe are utilizing Zoom during this tough time.”

Zoom 5.0 includes default, enhanced encryption, and a fresh security icon to control meetings.
