Jitsi instead of Zoom & Co – online meetings free of charge and GDPR compliant!

Online meetings are used more and more, especially in the Corona crisis. Most programs, however, inadvertently forward a lot of user data to the respective operator of the online meeting room. Most users are not aware of this fact or are simply ignored due to a lack of alternatives. Providers like Zoom & Co. collect a huge amount of data and are not GDPR-compliant.

Zoom & Co. are not GDPR compliant – user data is secretly passed on to Facebook!

Jitsi meet conference number

This also results from Zoom’s data protection regulations (as of April 2020). The company is therefore not complying with the laws applicable in the EU. American companies only have to comply with US laws. However, these requirements will not allow for data protection in the EU. Incidentally, this applies not only to the provider of Zoom but also to Microsoft / Skype or Google Meet and so on. All these providers of online meetings and online video conferences do not comply with EU data protection regulations and are very problematic from the perspective of the GDPR.

ZOOM meeting with additional security concerns

Even large US companies like NASA have banned Zoom from being used for their own employees because of security concerns. Zoom has been the victim of various hacking attacks in recent months. These were able to inject malware into the users’ computers via security holes in the application.

Online conference providers that users and companies should not use.

– Zoom
– UberConference
– cisco Webex
– Google Meet
– Skype Business
– Whatsapp, Facebook & Co

Jitsi – the solution for online meetings – open source and free.

We present a technically mature and easy-to-use alternative for video conferences. It is completely free and does not collect user data. It is the Jitsi online project.

As a data protection-compliant replacement for Zoom and Co., you are in good hands with Jitsi. By the way, Jitsi Meet offers the same functions as Zoom and Co.

Jitsi Meet – Video explaining how to use it.

Jitsi Meet is a free online video conferencing tool. This video tutorial on YouTube explains the most important features of the application for online meetings.

Jitsi Meet – Explanation for setting up a video conference.

Setting up a new video conference is very easy. It is sufficient if you choose a suitable name, which then serves as the basis for the invitation link. You can also share it with other participants in the video conference. For security reasons, the name should be chosen creatively. To increase security, you can assign an additional password for the login.

Jitsi Meet as a free corporate solution

Jitsi Meet is a video conference application that can be used by anyone. But there is also another solution for companies that want to run the application on their own server, for example to increase security and data protection by one level. Each company could operate its own Jitsi server with relatively little financial effort and thus hold internal meetings. The costs for this are very low. V-servers can be rented for a small monthly fee. This is perfect for hundreds of simultaneous meetings.

Jitsi Meet Join Conference

For companies – your own server = 100% secure

Because “Jitsi Meet” is open source, you are not dependent on a single provider. There is a list of publicly accessible Jitsi instances on the project page and we have already mentioned a few here. If the security requirements are increased, the software can be set up on its own server. Sufficient basic technical knowledge is a prerequisite for this.

The effort is worthwhile, however, because in this case the entire infrastructure and thus all data remain under your own control. The prerequisite is that both the computing power of the system used and the Internet connection have the appropriate capacities.

Jitsi uses the open WebRTC standard as a basis. The audio codec Opus, optimized for speech, ensures audio quality. On the desktop, Jitsi Meet can easily be used via the browser. Apps for Android and iOS are available for smartphones.

Our tips for online meetings

The Firefox browser works well for most online meetings, but with Google Chrome / Chromium the server load is lower because it supports WebRTC multiplex. Wir empfehlen deshalb, den Chrome Browser zu verwenden, weil er eine bessere Bildqualität aufweist.

Ideally, a headset should be used for the video conference, if possible also connect a LAN cable.
