We see Zoom is really trying hard to achieve and come back on its way again...

Quote:Video conferencing service Zoom has released an update for its Linux, Mac, and Windows apps that removes the meeting ID from the app's title bar.

The update comes after the company's users have often leaked their meeting IDs, and even meeting passwords, when sharing screenshots of their meetings on social media.

Famous incidents include when UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson shared the meeting ID of a UK cabinet meeting, and when members of the Belgium Parliament accidentally exposed the meeting ID and the password of a Defense committee.

Zoom-bombing usually takes place because trolls search the internet for leaked meeting IDs, connect uninvited to Zoom conferences, and disturb meetings by hurling insults, playing pornographic content on the meeting video stream, or making threats to other attendees.

By hiding the meeting ID, Zoom hopes to curb down on Zoom-bombing raids that have plagued many of its users.
