This came despite a flurry of criticism the app encountered from cyber security experts and users, due to coding gaps.\r\n\r\nZoom use jumped after companies, political parties, schools, organizations and millions around the world were forced to work from home, after imposing public isolation measures, to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.
