Agora: Is Clubhouse’s Tech Stack Vulnerable to Chinese Surveillance?

Security researchers at the Stanford Internet Observatory have raised concerns over new tech unicorn Clubhouse’s security practices and links to Chinese startup Agora’s SDK. Co-founders of Clubhouse, Paul Davison and Rohan Seth, have reportedly said in conversations on the app that they use Agora though Clubhouse does not publicly reveal its affiliation with the Chinese tech startup. Alex discusses the reports looking at Clubhouse’s use of Agora and explains why he wouldn’t trust any company subject to China’s internet regulatory regime.
