Is the zoom app going to be banned in India? This question is arising in the minds of many people after the ban on one China app. Now the central government has made its stand clear in the Lok Sabha on this. Minister of State for Electronics and Information Technology (MoS) Sanjay Dhotre said in response to a question, the government has not received any proposal to ban the Zoom App.
Raghuram Raju, MP from Narasapuram in Andhra Pradesh, asked questions on the issue. However, the Minister of State definitely said that the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (Certificate-in) has issued several advisories on the safe and secure use of video conferencing tools, including the Zoom App app.
If users use Zoom App to keep these things in mind, then they will be safe. Let the government strike the app of the Chinese companies after the border dispute with the Chinese increased. Then in July, 59 apps were banned for the first time. There was no Zoom App in this list. The ban of Chinese apps continued.
Let me tell you, the Zoom App is not a Chinese, but an American app, and the Central Government has already issued advisory about it. The headquarter of this company is in San Jose. However, it has a large workforce in China, after which it was questioned and many companies banned its use. At the same time, the Government of India had also issued advisory regarding this.
Zoom is more secure than before
Zoom app has become more secure earlier. Zoom 5.0 has arrived since May 30, which is fully enabled on the GMC encryption platform. After constant questions about security and privacy, Zoom launched a new update of this app with better security features. Then the company said, please update all your clients to Zoom 5.0.
After May 30, all Zoom clients on older versions will try to attend the meeting which will have to be updated, as it will be completely secure on the GMC encryption zoom platform.
