Privacy and security have priority
Zoho Meeting will need your consent for actions including turning your web camera on and allowing another participant to take control of your computer during the online meeting. All your Personal Identification Information (PII) is safely encrypted meaning any information shared at a meeting cannot be read or interpreted. However, it should also be noted that downloads take up valuable drive space making desktops more vulnerable to security threats.
