This is a United States-based action. If you did not reside in the United States or its territories at the time you used the Zoom Meetings application, you are not eligible to participate in this Settlement.

If you used the Zoom Meetings application between March 30, 2016, and July 30, 2021, this proposed class-action settlement may affect your rights.

Plaintiffs and Class Representatives (“Plaintiffs”) and Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (“Zoom”) have reached a settlement in a class action lawsuit (the “Action”) entitled In re: Zoom Video Communications, Inc. Privacy Litigation, N.D. Cal. Master Case No. 5:20-cv-02155-LHK (the “Settlement”).

The lawsuit focuses on alleged privacy and security issues with the Zoom Meetings Application (“App”). The lawsuit alleges that Zoom (i) shared certain information with third parties, (ii) should have done more to prevent unwanted meeting disruptions by third parties, and (iii) advertised its Zoom Meetings App as being encrypted “end-to-end” when Plaintiffs contend it was not at that time.

Zoom denies these allegations, denies any liability whatsoever, and believes that no member of the Settlement Class, including the Plaintiffs, has sustained any damages or injuries due to these allegations.

The Court has not decided who is right or wrong. Instead, both sides have agreed to a Settlement to resolve the dispute without further litigation risk and expense.

Zoom has agreed to pay $85 million to settle the Action. As part of the Settlement, Zoom also has agreed to make certain changes to its policies and practices that benefit Settlement Class Members, pursuant to Section 3 of the Settlement Agreement.
