Many people are finding out what it is like to work from home because of the Covid-19 outbreak, which in turn has led to a surge in the use of video conferencing software. Zoom in particular has seen a massive uptick in usage. While that’s a good thing for Zoom, it has also raised concerns about the platform’s privacy and security.

Just how popular is Zoom these days? As spotted by The Guardian, daily traffic to the Zoom.us download page experienced a 535 percent surge in daily traffic over the past month, according to data from web analytics firm SimilarWeb. And according to SensorTower, Zoom’s iPhone app has been downloaded more than any other app in the US for the past several weeks.
