Zoom To Crack Down On Virtual Sex Parties



The enterprise video conferencing service is not just a popular tool to stay in touch with family and friends during the global pandemic, some journalists have been documenting how people are relying on Zoom to host sex parties, which

involve participants getting naked in front of their computers to perform naughty acts. 

But what does Zoom think about all this? A new piece from Rolling Stone magazine suggests the company is trying to crack down on the digital orgies. 

In case you didn’t know, people are using Zoom to hold virtual sex parties. 

Zoom’s user policies explicitly prohibit any obscene, indecent, illegal, or violent activity or content on the platform,” a Zoom spokesperson told the publication. “We encourage users to report suspected violations of our policies, and we use a mix of tools, including machine learning to proactively identify accounts that may be in violation.”

Zoom was contacted, but it declined to comment. Notwithstanding, it is important to note the San Jose-based company will probably have a tough time making any sort of dent in the adult activity.

According to Zoom’s own privacy policy, the company never monitors your meetings or the content. “Unless a meeting is recorded by the host, the video, audio, and chat content is not stored,” the company adds. 

Zoom has no ability to spy on your meetings. On the other hand, bad activity can fly under the company’s nose, including attempts by strangers to maliciously hijack your meetings. 

On the internet, you can now find numerous videos of students, internet trolls, and even racists hijacking Zoom meetings to embarrass and harass unsuspecting victims. In some cases, the “Zoom-bombing” incidents have involved the attackers successfully displaying hardcore pornography clips to innocent children. Thus far, machine-learning tools have not stepped in to flag nudity in those cases. 

Zoom declined to answer Rolling Stone's questions about how the nudity-catching machine learning tools work. Zoom sex party host also told of a magazine he was doubtful about a crackdown. “I think this is another instance of a business that wants to pretend it doesn’t do these things, but of course it does,” he said. 

We’ll have to wait and see if the company decides to take action. But Zoom is well aware that its video conferencing service is now being used for purposes it never envisioned, due to its sudden popularity from the pandemic. 

Zoom CEO Eric Yuan said earlier this month that they now have a much broader set of users who are utilizing our product in a myriad of unexpected ways, presenting us with challenges we did not anticipate when the platform was conceived,”  In response, the company has hit pause on developing new features, and is focusing the next three months on tackling trust, safety, and privacy issues with the product.

We hope they really will do something about this before it gets out of hand.
