Zoom has seen a tremendous rise in the recent years due to lesser mobility of people around the world who now use the video conferencing app for various applications such as studying or working from home. Even though the app has been marred by security and privacy concerns by many, it has still succeeded in becoming an essential tool for people to stay in touch and continue their work without any disruption.

The company has answered those privacy concerns by introducing end-to-end encryption feature to keep one’s account safe. Furthermore, they have also introduced a ‘virtual events’ feature that allows its user to both organize and attend social or work gatherings such as meetings, conferences and concerts.
