Because Zoom’s service is not end-to-end encrypted, and the company has access to all encryption keys and to all video and audio content traversing its cloud, it’s possible that governments around the world could be compelling the company to hand over copies of this data. If Zoom does help governments spy on its users, the company claims that it hasn’t built tools specifically to help law enforcement: “Zoom has never built a mechanism to decrypt live meetings for lawful intercept purposes,” Gal, Zoom’s chief product officer, wrote in the technical blog post, “nor do we have means to insert our employees or others into meetings without being reflected in the participant list.”
