Zoom security issues: Here’s everything that’s gone wrong (so far)

Zoom security tip

Join Zoom meetings through your web browser rather than using the Zoom desktop software. The web browser version gets security enhancements faster.

“The web version sits in a sandbox in the browser and doesn’t have the permissions an installed app has, limiting the amount of harm it can potentially cause,” notes information-security company Kaspersky.

When you click a link to join a meeting, your browser will open a new tab and prompt you to use or install the Zoom desktop software. But in the fine print, there’s a link to “join from your browser.” Click that instead.
