Schedulers—aren't they the most convenient organizing tools, helping us juggle our daily tasks and commitments with ease? But you know what the most annoying thing with these schedulers is? All the meetings scheduled via them are powered by centralized giants like Google Meet and Zoom.
While they are two of the most popular video conferencing platforms, they have been criticized for their privacy practices.
Problem with GMeet and Zoom
Data collection: Both Google Meet and Zoom collect a wide range of data about their users, including their IP addresses, device information, and meeting metadata. This data can be used to track users' movements and online activity.
Data sharing: They have also been criticized for sharing data with third parties, including advertisers and other companies without users' consent. For example, in 2020, it was discovered that Zoom was sharing users' data with Facebook.
Security vulnerabilities: They have even faced security vulnerabilities in the past that could have allowed attackers to access users' meetings and devices. For example, Google Meet was vulnerable to a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack. This vulnerability allowed attackers to inject malicious code into Google Meet meetings which can be used to steal users' cookies, passwords, and other sensitive information.
The Need for a Privacy-Focused Video Meeting Solution
Basically, there is an alarming need for schedulers compatible with a more privacy-focused video meeting solution that ensures:
Zero Data Collection: You should have the ability to host meetings without compromising any of your personal information like email, phone number, etc.
Encrypted Meetings: We believe it’s the basic right of every human to speak their mind without having to worry about eavesdroppers.
Data Ownership: All meeting data should only and only belong to the meeting participants. It should be securely stored without allowing third parties access to them.
Token gating: There is an increasing number of reported instances where meetings have been intruded by unwanted participants. Measures should be taken to prevent this. For example, meetings can be gated for people with access to specific tokens/POAPs, etc.
All of this should be ensured on top of the traditional features of video conferencing apps like host controls, group chat, multi-streaming, etc.
