The basic problem is that you enter a meeting by loading a URL, and loading URLs is something any website can do. There probably needs to be a confirmation step before joining a meeting.

A custom URL scheme would at least provide an opportunity to confirm launching Zoom, even if Zoom itself didn’t confirm joining s particular meeting (which I agree it should).

They put this in place precisely to avoid Safari's "Do you want to open this in Zoom" confirmation prompt

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
