You might hear of Zoom App or about Zoom’s Data Breach that’s taking place these days, but today something shocking came in the view by Fresh Founder Report which claims “Zoom is Hacking Users Gmail account for Personal use” including a Voice note as evidence & today we try to make a spotlight over it.
How Zoom App Hacked Gmail Account?
“Today morning I got a message from my friend saying that his account has been Logged-in into a Samsung’s Tablet which he doesn’t know about as he is an iPhone 11 user & for lappy, he uses Mac, not only him but his entire family is an Apple user but the Login was of an Android Device.”, – Reported by Fresh Founder in the Post
The story & doubt started when last noon his younger brother asked him to log in to the app as his school classes were going on onto the Zoom so he logged in in-his mac using his own Gmail into Zoom.
The next day he gets an alert in his Gmail Notification that his Email has got some suspicious login from an Android Device that came out to a Samsung Galaxy Tablet.
2-Step Authentication but no safety?
He examines his activities & checked details, there were Site Visits on different Websites, Google Play Store, AndroidPolice.com visit, Google Analytics visit, Sotonic visits & some other Links that aren’t working now, even joined Zoom Meetings at 12 PM that doesn’t make any sense.
“He told me that no one has Android Device so how his account got logged into it? How Google Play Store was visited when there’s no Play Store on iPhone, Why he/she visited Android Police? What meeting was joined at 12 PM? Which kinda Links were that that aren’t opening now?”
Amogh Gupta founder of Fresh Founder asked for the Voice Note which you can Listen below from his friend to explain the scenario.
Zoom Voice Note:
The owner asked him about all this & this only happened only after Zoom Login because nothing like this has happened before with him.
He stated that he has enabled 2-Step Verification but while logging into the Zoom he has entered OTP & I think from that moment Hacker has got access.
Moreover, the tension is Apple is said most secure environment but if Apple can be hacked or anyone can gain access to your Gmail just by Login-in into the App or Downloading the App so how dangerous it is.
He also told me “When I tried to Login anonymously so it denied the access”, which means you are left with only 1 option to get in.
How Zoom Gmail Access can Exploit users privacy?
If you don’t know that Gmail is connected to your Gallery & with every information that Google stores so if someone has your Gmail access then you are an open book for anyone, your- Web Visits, Photos, Videos, Contacts, Chats, Apps access, Social Media, your Address, etc. are in hackers or exploiter hand.
This isn’t a joke because people think what company will do of all this data but my Dear you can be analyzed & can be tracked including what kinda person you are, what you do, whos connected with you, your behaviors & all other things.
And it is not only you but loads of others so a company can be built an empire with this data and can sell it to advertisers to bring make you a Public toy or Money Machine.
This is suggested to look and switch to alternatives as if this doesn’t stop now so you can become a Victim.
