    I am taking a hard look at Vsee right now in the wake of this allegation.

    Yup. I have used vsee for 3 months now. I find it more stable, less resource hungry and I get to do 3 way video calls for free.

    I ditched vsee some months back as I found there were some things which didn't sit right. I found it difficult to navigate their information on their website. I'm always wary of sites pulling others down in constant comparison to their own fantastic offerings. The gold standard is that software is open source. As I understand it, vsee is proprietary software and though encrypted, it still goes through their servers, but I don't understand how their system really works. Support was woefully lacking at the time I was using it. Other red flags to me was their privacy statement wasn't directly available until I went some way in the signing up process, and there was very little in their FAQ. Strangely it is said to be frequented by such names as those high up in officialdom.

    You are going to be tracked no matter which of this type of program you use, that is the nature of these programs.

    Nope, it's the amount of third-party access to your connection these days. The nature of these programs is simply two-way communication.
