Zoom disclosed on Thursday that it had deactivated the accounts of several US-based human-rights activists at the request of the Chinese government.

Zoom said it blocked the hosts' user accounts because it didn't have the functionality to block individual accounts by location.

It said going forward it would "not allow requests from the Chinese government to impact anyone outside of mainland China."
