All data on its network is monitored in real time by the United States Department of Homeland Security, through compliance with a program called FedRAMP. They actually advertise this functionality, because it allows them to contract with government agencies in the United States, which is very lucrative. You can look this up on wikipedia or their website. They have specific encryption backdoors built into the software to allow the monitoring with all encryption dynamically removed.

Additionally, the host of individual calls can see everything on the other participants' computer without their knowledge, active windows, etc. This is because the system is designed for corporate workflow, not anarchist organizing lol

If you observe someone you organize with saying "it's encrypted, don't worry" who is also hosting the calls...they might not have your best interest in mind, just saying.
