If you've ever video chatted iPhone-to-iPhone, chances are you used FaceTime. Apple's video calling app is installed on all its devices by default, meaning FaceTime options get prime placement. FaceTime is super simple, making it easy to access features like mute and flip camera. This simplicity is also FaceTime's downside: callers can't lock their calls with a password, use a virtual background, or access a web link that would allow anyone to quickly join a call. The biggest downside? The FaceTime club is an exclusive one – if you don't have an Apple device, you can't join.

Wie geht es mit Privatsphäre um?

Wie werden Daten ausgetauscht?
Apple does collect personal infomation on users such as email address, phone number, social media profile information, and more. Apple states in its privacy policy that it does not sell personal information with third parties for marketing purposes. However, Apple also states that there may be times it provides third parties with certain personal information to help Apple market to consumers.
Wie werden meine Aufzeichnungen behandelt?
FaceTime does not have an official call recording option.
Benachrichtigen, wenn Anrufe aufgezeichnet werden?
Nicht verfügbar
FaceTime has no built-in call record feature, but callers are still able to take a screenshot of their screen. Snapping a screenshot with the button on the bottom left of the call window results in an alert to the other person about the screenshot. Taking a screenshot using a physical button combination (home button + power button or home button + volume button) does not alert the other caller. Newer versions of iOS allow users to record video of their screen using the Screen Recording feature. If one FaceTime user starts to record video of their screen, the app will not alert call participants as to what's happening.
Gibt die Plattform an, dass sie sich an die US-amerikanischen Gesetze zum Schutz der Privatsphäre hält?
FaceTime is not HIPAA compliant
Verweist auf Datenschutzinformationen

Kann ich es kontrollieren?

Einstellungsmöglichkeiten für Gastgeber
Hosts and participants all have the same level of control, from muting their own mic to switching from their phone's front-facing camera to the rear. FaceTime centers video conference calls around group chats within the iPhone's Messages app. Anyone within a specific group chat can join the group FaceTime call at any time.
Ist es einfach, die Funktionen zu erlernen und zu verwenden?
FaceTime features are straightforward. Apple device owners can make FaceTime calls right from their device's Messages app by tapping the video icon. Apple's site provides documentation to learn how to use features.

Was könnte passieren, wenn etwas schief geht?

Not too much, we think. Apple is known for having a pretty strong privacy track record. FaceTime is end-to-end encrypted, which is the best case scenario for a video chat app. FaceTime makes a fine video chat option (if all your friends own Apple products).


Maybe we shouldn’t use Zoom after all
Now that we’re all stuck at home thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, video calls have gone from a novelty to a necessity. Zoom, the popular videoconferencing service, seems to be doing better than most and has quickly become one of, if not the most, popular option going. But should it be?
