Security and privacy can be compromised when using the Zoom App. This extension acts as your assistant by detecting Zoom requests that attempt to link you to a meeting via the Zoom app. It simply redirects you to the web-based version of the Zoom call. This also eliminates the host's ability to detect your focus on the meeting and view data on your device.

There is no reason to install the Zoom App when our simple extension gives you all these benefits

Your boss will no longer be able to detect if you’re a little preoccupied on Facebook or browsing personal sites whilst on a Zoom call

Existing security issues and future automated App updates will no longer be your concern (Forbes Quote: “Zoom Security Tip: Avoid The App”)

You’ll no longer need access passwords on a device to make or join a Zoom call.

It's much faster to click a Zoom web link rather than be redirected and join the call via the Zoom App.

Privacy - the Zoom App views data on your device and collects information about you; who knows what future automated updates will view!

Our extension is constantly being developed with your privacy in mind. Download this extension and future updates will make sure you are protected.

Risk impact

Zoom Assistant requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Zoom Assistant is very likely to contain malware and should not be trusted. Avoid installing.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
