Clubhouse, a mainstream audio chat room app announced on February 2021 that it was finding a way to make sure that the client’s information couldn't be stolen by any programmers or spies, but one programmer has proved the theory wrong.
Reema Bahnasy, a representative for Clubhouse stated that an unidentified user had stolen Clubhouse sound feeds from different rooms into their third party websites. On February 13, 2021 Stanford Internet Observatory said that the IOS users only have the permission to record all the conversations. Alex Stamos, Facebook’s former security chief and director of the SIO stated that Clubhouse will not be able to provide any protection promises for conversations which is held globally. Stamos and his group also confirmed that Clubhouse depends on a Shanghai-based startup called Agora to deal with a lot of its back-end activities. He also stated that Clubhouse is responsible for its clients experience like adding friends, creating rooms, and the platform depends on the Chinese organization to handle its audio production and data traffic. Stamos said that Clubhouse's reliance on Agora raises broad protection concerns, particularly for Chinese residents and protesters under the impression that their conversations are out of the reach of state observations.
