    Due to Doctors surgeries not wishing to see patients directly at the moment if it can be avoided, my local surgery is asking patients to download and use Whereby video meeting app either on a phone or PC. They have a free one user version.
    Has anyone here used it, or know how safe it is etc?

    Looks like a cool app, but apparently they need to tighten security.

    I have discovered it and been planning on full utilization if/ when Skype fails me.
    However, the one striking thought is this - it cannot be a full Skype replacement.
    Second, the ability to have a locally installed client makes it slightly more secure.
    Third, alike Zoom, a beginner is obliged to go through all the extra settings to make sure the security measures are properly taken.

    4. It is an internet application, can we expect it to be safe-solid?

    Nyone can share their story?
