Earlier this year we saw an increase in the number of reports we received about some people using our service in ways that we cannot tolerate. To be more clear, this was not about some people merely saying things that others disliked.
Over the past several months we tried multiple strategies in order to end the violations of our terms of service. However in the end, we determined that requiring authentication was a necessary step to continue operating meet.jit.si.
It is a pity. There is illegal activity everywhere and the anonymity that their service offered makes them less liable IMO. I assume as you, that if it was law enforcement was involved it is some illegal activity.
It is a shame that they are getting pressure based on the fact they can not help law enforcement, when illegal activity happens all the time on social media and due to the large amount of activity it is ignored.
Thanks @Henry and @privacyowl for the links. Creating a “personal room” link has always been a nice feature to have, since I could assign a particular room to a particular person for all future meetings. I’ll definitely check out the recommended alternatives.
