New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday asked the centre to respond to a petition seeking a ban on video conferencing app Zoom.
Chief Justice of India S A Bobde headed the bench, which issued a notice to the government asking it to file a reply within four weeks.
Zoom was declared as an unsafe platform by Ministry of Home Affairs.
The plea alleges that Zoom app “practices data hoarding and cyber hoarding,” including storage of personal data, cloud recordings, messages and files.
“Zoom is reported to have a bug that can be abused intentionally to leak information of users to third parties. The app has been falsely claiming that calls are end-to-end encrypted when they are not,” the petition said.
Zoom had earlier apologised for “mistakenly routing traffic through China”, the petition pointed out.
