Cross Ocean Week 13 / March 24th, 2020

Dear Members,

I hope you and your families are all staying healthy and sane amidst the lock-down measures that have been put into place to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Here in the Philippines we have been several weeks in, first self-imposed and now, government imposed lock-down, but my family is all coping with it well.

You may find it insightful to learn about the privacy concerns related to one of the most popular video-conferencing services called Zoom (https://zoom.us/). It has come to light that Zoom is a work-from-home privacy disaster waiting to happen.

In recent days, thanks in part to the social-distancing measures made necessary by the coronavirus outbreak, converts to the work-from-home life are being forced to contend with the widely used videoconferencing service Zoom. There’s just one problem: It’s not exactly privacy-friendly.

Zoom is equipped with numerous settings that even many of its longtime users may not know about. Take, for example, the “attendee attention tracking” feature. According to Zoom, if enabled, this feature allows hosts of conference calls — i.e. your boss — to monitor participants’ computers. Apparently this includes the ability of the meeting host to see an indicator when a participant doesn’t have the zoom app in focus for more than 30 seconds and can even see which application the participant is using. Read more…

We at Cross Ocean starting looking into video conferencing services more seriously as lockdowns started to appear imminent, I found two promising alternatives to Zoom that have better privacy features: Proficonf https://proficonf.com/ and Wire https://wire.com/.

In today’s newsletter we are happy to announce a new member representing the U.A.E. and member movements involving Sweden & Sweden – Singapore, Malaysia, China – Russia, China – Congo, China – Philippines, China – Myanmar, China – Ukraine, the Netherlands and the UK.

We also have tech news and carrier resources (positions lists).
