Does UberConference store my screen share?

UberConference screen share is encrypted both in transit and at rest from the time you start the screen share until it ends. None of the information you share is accessible to anyone other than those viewing it through your conference URL.

Don't forget, if a Participant is viewing your conference that shouldn't be, you always have the option to evict them from your conference

After your screen share ends, the information is no longer available to your Participants nor is it stored by or accessible to UberConference.
