Let's talk more
Security is a broad and complex topic. This section is an attempt to knock off the buzzwords and talk straight about how we deal with security. For a more technical discussion, do read our white paper.
Rooms are private by design
All "rooms" are private by design. A meeting room appears once and only once. The very room is ephemeral -- it lasts as long as the last participant is around. And when that participant leaves, the room is destroyed. And with it any transient data that happened to transpired during that meeting.
Password protect rooms: Two layers
When creating a room, you have an option of password protecting it right away. The room name/link and password must now be shared with the people you want to invite. When the session is in progress, we allow hosts to further reset the password to a brand new one. This thwarts the inadvertent advertisement of room credentials by any one of the participants prior to joining the call.
Sharing rooms name: security tips
A room name or link is all it takes to join a meeting. It's important to understand ways to secure access to this information. For a start, only share meeting-links with trusted people using secure channels like encrypted emails/chat-services. Never broadcast your room link on social media, unless you are open to the idea of random people joining on a conversation. Avoid posting room links on public websites, broadcast lists, and public news feeds for that same reason.
Can I reuse a room name?
We strongly urge you to not do that. Although a room name appears only once on the product, creating new rooms with different names every-time dramatically reduced the probability of someone trying to guess your session-name. This also safeguards against your participants inadvertently sharing your 'reused' room name somewhere else.
We collect bare-bones analytics to help us anticipate trends and site usage across the world. This helps us prepare for unexpected surges, provision our servers and plan future server deployments in different parts of the world. We store trends such as the number of sessions we host, countries of origin, and session durations. We do not, however, store any personally identifying information on our servers (names, IP-addresses, etc.,).
