Zoom access restriction from some countries?

Hello.

I’m a CERN user

I’m trying to sing up to cern.zoom.us from Cuba. I’m getting “403 Forbidden”. If I use a proxy located on another country I can go on.
So, my conclusion is that I’m block due to political restriction of US government.

The use of a software with those “political” restriction should not be avoided by CERN?

I agree with you that if zoom.us applies such of policy, cern + us should avoid to use such of services or app.
In the meantime you can try to use a service or app which fakes your proxy…

A quick search reveals this page from Zoom support:

So more than 20 countries are blocked, some of them with a considerable number of CERN users. At least they are open about it.
