Bad luck just doesn’t seem to end for Zoom as new cases of privacy issues keep piling up. As a result, they have lost the trust of many users who are now switching to other means of communication. One of the most notable companies to ban their employees from using the application is Google as reported by BuzzFeed News.

Last week, Google sent an email to the employees saying that they need to uninstall Zoom from their devices because it would no longer be the medium for their video conferences and communication. It is important to add here that Google has its own enterprise Zoom competitor named Meet that offers similar services.

We have long had a policy of not allowing employees to use unapproved apps for work that are outside of our corporate network,” Google spokesperson Jose Castaneda tells The Verge. “Recently, our security team informed employees using Zoom Desktop Client that it will no longer run on corporate computers as it does not meet our security standards for apps used by our employees. Employees who have been using Zoom to stay in touch with family and friends can continue to do so through a web browser or via mobile.”
