Zoom starts updating, which prevents Facebook from collecting user data

On Friday, Zoom released a new update to its iOS app that removes the code that sends user data to Facebook.

Monitor Motherboards in Program Code - The use of the program has increased dramatically in recent weeks due to social isolation measures against people around the world to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The app sends user data to Facebook, for example b- the user's time zone and city.

The website indicates that when the user opens the app, the user's device details are sent to the user without his knowledge, even if the user does not have a Facebook account.

Zoom CEO (Eric Yuan) has now published an article explaining that the service uses the iOS "SDK" to activate the "Facebook Connect" function. The company said on March 25: Facebook's Software Development Kit collects unnecessary data from devices.

"We sincerely apologize for the concerns that have arisen and will continue to be committed to protecting the privacy of our users," Yuan said in the message. He added: "We are reviewing our processes and protocols for future implementation. These functions ensure that they are not duplicated again."
