Privacy breach case
Zoom, a video conferencing service provider, has agreed to pay $86m USD to settle a user privacy breach.

The lawsuit alleges that Zoom violated the privacy of millions of users by sharing users' personal information with Facebook, Google and LinkedIn.

The lawsuit was filed in March 2020 in a district court in northern California.

According to a BBC report on Monday, the Zoom authorities have denied the crime but have agreed to strengthen their security.

Initial mediation agreed to work with Zoom Information and provide special training to their staff on privacy. However, it must be approved by the District Judge of San Jose, California.

A Zoom spokesperson said: "The priority of Zoom is to protect users' privacy and security. We try our best to protect the trust that users have in us."
