Meet, Teams, and WebEx services bring you more data than you think

Consumer Reports has analyzed the privacy policies of Google Meet, Microsoft Teams and Cisco WebEx services and found that more user data may be collected.

According to consumer reports, the use of these applications is not secure. However, by accepting the privacy policy for these services, users can give companies like Google and Microsoft access to a lot of personal information.

According to the report, the three companies reserve the right to collect information about user calls, including: duration of the call, the person involved in the call, and the IP address of each participant.

With the increasing reliance on video conferencing tools around the world, people have begun to carefully examine the security measures and privacy policies of these services. While the guidelines for Microsoft, Google, and Cisco aren't as worrying as the April zoom issue, users should still be aware of the data these three companies have collected.

The Consumer Reports report indicates that the collected data can be combined with information from other sources to create user profiles and usage patterns, as well as videos such as face recognition training.

The three companies reported to consumer reports that they only promised that attendees would not use the recordings for "direct promotional purposes" if they were required to produce a video or pen during the meeting recording.
