Supreme Court looking for centre’s response on banning Zoom


Supreme Court has issued a notice to Central Govt., seeking its opinion on whether video conference app Zoom should be banned due to the arising privacy & data security concerns, and has also sent a similar notice to Zoom.


A 3-judge panel, headed by Chief Justice SA Bobde, hearing a plea filed by a Delhi-based tutor Harsh Chugh, argued that the app should be banned for both official & personal use until there is an appropriate law addressing data security issues.


“Poor privacy and security of the application have enabled hackers to get access to meetings, classes and conferences being conducted online through this application. Zoom is reported to have a bug that can be abused intentionally to leak information of users to third parties,” said the plea.
