Keep in mind dpkg never removes user data.

So that said, I checked, and it removes everything zoom installs that isn't in a user directory, plus (there is an extra script that does this):

    remove_folder "/opt/zoom"
    remove_folder "$HOME/.zoom/logs"
    remove_folder "$HOME/.cache/zoom"
Which is stupid since it's removing this from root, who probably never ran zoom.

Note it removes logs from .zoom, but not the directory itself. Which is good, since there might be user data in there (chat logs, and recordings).

Unlike Macs, there is no hidden webserver.

There is also (yes, it's commented out):

    #logged_in_users=$(who -q | head -n 1)
    #sorted_users=$(echo "$logged_in_users"|tr " " "\n"|sort|uniq|tr "\n" " ")
    #for user in $sorted_users;do
    #       echo "removing $(grep -w ^$user /etc/passwd | cut -d ":" -f6)""/.zoom..."
    #       remove_folder "$(grep -w ^$user /etc/passwd | cut -d ":" -f6)""/.zoom"
    #       echo "removing $(grep -w ^$user /etc/passwd | cut -d ":" -f6)""/.config/zoomus.conf..."
    #       remove_file "$(grep -w ^$user /etc/passwd | cut -d ":" -f6)""/.config/zoomus.conf"
