One of the biggest winners that came out because of corona virus lockdown was Zoom. Suddenly people couldn’t go to their offices and were all stuck home. Other services such as Skype had a limit to the number of people that can be added in a call so large scale meetings needed a platform that can be used to host them. This is where zoom came in with their unlimited room size. Suddenly everyone was using zoom to take presentation, teach classes hold meetings etc. Zoom started being used in schools and major businesses to hold video conferences. But all this came to a screeching halt when people started abusing a very prevalent feature of zoom. The major feature was the fact that anyone with a password to a room can join the room from anywhere across the world. Soon students started leaking the passwords online in an attempt to make their online classes more “interesting”. All of a student classes where being raided by 40 year old topless men screaming at the top of their lungs just for a few giggles. This trend blew up in the internet and twitch streamers started raiding innocent classroom sessions and work related meeting just for internet clout. This gave a huge problem to zoom which quicly saw how things were escalating and rolled out fixes for the problem. Some of the main features that led to the boom in zoom are –
