I added Zoom (free account) to my iMac today in case it is useful in the current working from home scenario we find ourselves in.

 

One thing I do not seem to be able to do is access or import contacts from my Contacts. It does not offer Apple as an option - just Microsoft 365, Google etc

 

 

 

Is there a way to do that?

You're ok with Zoom's gaping privacy issues?

Most people are, it's the de facto choice nowadays.

Rather than just make a comment like that, perhaps it would be helpful to explain the privacy issues and how they can be mitigated.

Typically don't like to send links like this because the opinions are far from objective.

I do see that Zoom have updated their privacy policy to use far less cavalier language as far as selling to third-parties.

 

 

 

I know Teams might have similar guff in their privacy policies but I feel strangely more comfortable with them sharing Personal Data with Bing given not a lot of people use it.

On the topic of Zoom, does anyone know how to get rid of the 'you are muted' popup that keeps incessantly popping up? I know I'm muted; that's why I clicked Mute!
