‘German government restricts use of Zoom over security concerns’

According to media reports, the German foreign ministry has restricted the use of the video conferencing service Zoom because of security concerns.

German government officials have become the latest to limit use of Zoom owing to a lack of adequate encryption, according to sources cited by Reuters news agency and the German Handelsblatt newspaper.

The app has seen a boom in global users as millions of people are forced to work or attend classes from home owing to restrictions put in place to slow the spread of coronavirus.
