Video-conferencing firm Zoom has agreed to pay $86m to settle a class action privacy lawsuit in the US.

The lawsuit alleged that Zoom had invaded the privacy of millions of users by sharing personal data with Facebook, Google and LinkedIn.

It also accused Zoom of misstating that it offers end-to-end encryption and for failing to prevent hackers from “zoombombing” sessions.

The firm denied any wrongdoing, but has agreed to boost its security practices.
