Reclaiming Your Privacy: Why Jitsi from Federated Computer is the Safer Choice Over Zoom
In recent years, video conferencing platforms have become essential tools for staying connected. However, recent updates to Zoom’s Terms of Service (TOS) have raised concerns about privacy and data ownership. As conscientious users, we must understand our rights and alternatives available for protecting our privacy. Let’s explore the changes in Zoom’s TOS and why Jitsi, hosted on Federated Computer, emerges as the safer and more privacy-centric option.
Zoom’s Privacy Concerns: No Opt-Out in Sight
One key concern with Zoom’s updated TOS lies in Section 10, which seems to leave users with little choice regarding their data. It grants Zoom broad rights to use “Customer Content” for various purposes, including AI training, marketing, analytics, and more, even if the content belongs to someone else. This includes recordings, transcripts, and any other data shared during Zoom sessions. Notably, there is no opt-out option, leaving users with limited control over how their data is used and shared.
Federated Computer: Your Sanctuary of Data Sovereignty
At Federated Computer, we stand for data sovereignty and privacy. That’s why we’re proud to offer Jitsi, the open-source video meeting software, as a secure alternative to Zoom. With Jitsi, you have full control over your data, ensuring that it remains protected and confidential. Unlike Zoom, Jitsi does not impose indefinite ownership rights or require you to indemnify them or Federated for potential IP infringements. With Jitsi, you can be confident that your data is in safe hands, i.e., YOUR HANDS, because you hold the keys to your encrypted communications and call history.
Empowering Choice: Jitsi and Federated Core
Jitsi offers equivalent functionality to Zoom while being independent of the whims of some Silicon Valley management team. Jitsi is also open-source meaning you have access to the code, promoting transparency and community-driven development.
The Opt-Out Solution: Choose Jitsi with Federated Core
We believe in empowering users with choice and control over their data. With Jitsi on Federated Core, you can opt-out of the invasive data practices imposed by Zoom’s TOS. Your video meetings become more secure, flexible, and privacy-centric. Enjoy the convenience of Single Sign-On (SSO) for your team, ensuring seamless collaboration while maintaining data integrity.
