Reliance Jio’s newly launched JioMeet free video conferencing app has improved its security features to avoid attacks.
JioMeet introduced additional security features to avoid Zoom-like attacks on screens where hackers posted obscene images.
The host may deny guests to enter a meeting without having to sign in or reveal their identity.
The app, which allows for 24-hour video conferences with up to 100 participants, added the feature, addressing the rumors that emerged during an online class about participants posting obscene images on the computer.
JioMeet has launched six new features in its first week after going live that would prevent hackers from joining a meeting according to sources. Those involve personal meeting rooms with the ability to set the password of one’s own meeting to encourage regular meetings such as school classes and everyday meeting. Furthermore, users will now be able to double-click their window to enlarge and add another member. The new features for Android devices have been rolled out and will soon also be available for iOS users.
In addition, for enterprise users, JioMeet has introduced a single-use sign-on. Employees at the organization will now use their same user-ID and password to attend a virtual meeting.
More than 1 Mn users have already downloaded JioMeet which was released on July 2. The app is expected to challenge the likes of Zoom, Microsoft Teams and Google Meets in the video conferencing room, among others. The software has gained a lot of attention because it’s totally free to use, and it boasts an enviable feature list. Its 24-hour time limit for a free community video meeting exceeds that of its rivals in the space as other apps like Google Meets and Zoom only allow a free 60 and 40 minute video call, respectively.
