These changes are expected to include “in-meeting notifications to make it easier for users to understand who can see, save, and share Zoom users’ information” and “alerting users when a meeting host or another participant uses a third-party application during a meeting.”
“The privacy and security of our users are top priorities for Zoom, and we take seriously the trust our users place in us,” a spokesperson for the company told CNN Business. “We are proud of the advancements we have made to our platform, and look forward to continuing to innovate with privacy and security at the forefront,” the spokesperson added.
Zoom collected approximately $1.3 billion in subscriptions from the class action participants who paid for a subscription, according to settlement documents.
The deal requires approval from US District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose, California, to be finalized.
