Is the zoom app not safe anymore?

Zoom app which has found its use on the rise especially during these COVID-19 times where most social gatherings have been banned and people are locked down from their houses has been threatened to security issues.

It is a video-conferencing app that is being used for online meetings, online classes for teachers to teach their students, etc. However, the MHA (Ministry of Home Affairs) has warned against its use stating that it’s not safe for use as it is a threat to cybersecurity since many users have complained of hackers hijacking video calls and passwords getting leaked. Some countries already banned their use such as Germany and Singapore.

Some guidelines have then been set for the safety of the users by the government of India. These include security which ensures no unauthorized entry in the conference using a zoom app because any unknown person can carry out malicious activity.
