This is an awesome app! I’m enjoying it, you can see anyone from around the world!!! Most of my friends glitch here though, here are some details that happens to my siblings and I that you should worry about 1.) you can’t get in well my little brother, was
Trying to get in zoom, and typing in the correct password and it wouldn’t let him in, 2.) worry your child will glitch, you will glitch sometimes when you talk and freeze, the teacher or any other person will think you are not paying attention or if accidentally left there is a big chance you will get in trouble. 3) Your child could get kicked out of class. When I was in my class, I had to go to the bathroom, my teacher thought that I wasn’t paying attention so she kicked me out, I prefer telling the teacher
Before you go in the chat room except in the private chat.
So as I am trying to sign up it asks for my birthday, which it insists it today. I am a newborn trying to sign up for zoom. When I finally relent and click confirm, I was born today. I get a notice stating that I can not join Zoom today. Why? Is one day old too young ? So now I have a group of people assembling (my idea) to Zoom this Saturday. But I guess the person doing the legwork to make this happen won’t be joining the conversation. Unless I can join at 4 days old on Saturday. WTF
Simple enough but sometimes app doesn't reflect changes made in settings like Admit participants, use of passwords. All in all it's been a lifesaver for many of my widowed senior friends since Mid March when lockdown took place in Ottawa,Canada. i host a meeting Mon-Fri with them and it's good for all of us. we are a group of 20+ who used to do aquafitness Mon-Fri then go for coffee after, those who could. Zoom at least gives us some sort of routine and normalcy. thank you
Hey I think that this is a great app!
If you are looking for a way to connect or even teach a class this app is the one. I have had troubles with other apps crashing but not on this app. Also the reason I only gave four stars is because I can’t seem to use the virtual background it’s amazing! And Free which is great during this time(quarantine)
Thank you so much but please write back about the virtual background.
It’s NOT end-to-end encrypted - their are just lying about that aspect.
Under no. Circumstance should anyone install this app on their macOS or win10 machine - Zoom installs a private web server that opens up ports and creates security vulnerabilities for the user of the machine this is installed on.
It’s safer to run it on the iPad, but not clear how much safer.
I’m in several groups, all using using Zoom several times each week, some tech-happy, most not, so Zoom is easy for all. I know my IP address is used — that’s how the service can connect whoever is using it. So far, so good enough. Bumpy patches due to gross surges in usage and insufficient capacity. All in all everyone can have a “good meeting” experience.
When Covid hit my personal fitness centre was closed down. Within a few days I was able to get my business up and running through zoom. I have clients from 20 years of age to 88 years of age and they were ALL ability to navigate through the sign-up process and getting on to classes. It has been a great success!

During the Pandemic I have used it to have coffee with friends and family. I even used it to discuss house plans with a couple that lives quite a few miles from me. One time we had a group together and had a couple from P.E.I., Canada; a lady in Turkey; one person in B.C.; and 3 Families in Calgary..
The reason why i gave this app a 3 star rating is because there are a lot of glitches and bugs in the app but since i use this app all the time for online school i kinda got used to it but other than that i thunk it is a pretty decent app.
Thank you Zoom, we were able to connect with our daughter who is locked down in long term care for her 25th birthday today.
I cannot tell you what this means to her and to her family who hasn’t been able to see her in months. Thank you
