Addition of non-invasive videoconferencing / warning on security and privacy

The videoconferencing software that is in wide use now consists mostly of non-free and privacy-unfriendly software like Zoom (e.g. at GFI) and Skype (UiB wide). Users should be warned for far-going privacy invasion (see terms-of-service and privacy-policies). The UiB should not request users to use such measures, especially within their private home.

Alternatives include Jitsi. This is free software, not centralised and can be self-hosted. Of course it is encrypted and because of the aforementioned properties transparant (auditable for security and privacy). mhu027 (talk) 14:59, 14 March 2020 (CET)
