I've recently been forced to use Microsoft Teams. :-Q***** The experience has been so unintuitive, clunky, obtuse and dysfunctional that it makes Zoom look 4 star. So I gave Zoom a fourth star.

I seem to be among a lot of people who simply cannot understand why Zoom categorically refuses to allow interaction with any password manager or Keychain. I know it's not that hard to have to manually type in everything every. single. time. but it sure gets bloody annoying multiple times a day and honestly- it's not exactly like Zoom needs unbreakable security. C'mon guys- it's 2023 this shouldn't be this hard.

Bizarre that it can handle the Apple, Google and other login via OpenID but cannot handle keychain interaction for the username and password. Has some great features but this is really a pain, especially for federal government customers who cannot use any OpenID mechanisms they support.

Bleh. Just when it looked like Zoom had figured out how to auto-update, it didn't bother to update to the latest version. So I had to tell it to. - - Meanwhile, Zoom has been pulled from use by the medical profession in many areas because it's now considered to NOT be HIPAA compliant. This subject has been a ping-pong tournament for years. I don't know the dirt yet. But Zoom lost the match. (o_0)

Nice app with very strange shortcomings. Why would an app on a Mac in this day and age not be compatible with the system keychain? This would allow easy and secure sharing of my credentials between my iPad , iPhone AND Macintosh. Yet on macOS, no keychain interaction. For whatever reason I get kicked out of Zoom and I have to re-login again. Every time this happens I have to fish my password from the keychain manually and of course Zoom gets a virtual eye-roll

At the moment, v5.11.7 is in BETA. So don't bother with it unless that's what you want. You can't even download it yet directly from Zoom's website. But DO frequently run "Check for Updates..." inside of Zoom, if only because their auto-update system so far sucks. Let's hope they get it right soon. "Clunk Cluck" is never a reassuring sound.

v5.11.6 is a CRITICAL *MANUAL* UPDATE. The previous version of Zoom managed to BREAK its auto-updater such that it created a security hole that can be exploited AND it fails to update itself. *****Therefore v5.11.6 MUST BE INSTALLED MANUALLY. (o_0) What a mess. Just download it and DIY update it, AND TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS. There are several warnings about this situation up on the net. I knocked my rating down a couple points. Very bad.
