Zoom gains long-awaited functionality for users

The famous Zoom application is now preparing to strengthen the security of video calls is that the service has finally implemented end-to-end encryption for all users. This prevents Zoom, or third parties (such as a hacker) from having access to our conversations. It is good to clarify that this feature is currently in beta.

Find out how to enable end-to-end encryption in Zoom

Connect with your Zoom account on the service’s site Access your profile by clicking on your avatar in the upper right corner of the screen then on your name in the drop-down menu Go to “Settings” via the left menu In the center column, scroll to the “End-to-end encrypted meetings (E2E)” setting and enable it. Enter your phone number to receive a code. This helps verify your identity. You can then choose the type of encryption: the most secure mode is “end-to-end encryption”

Zoom says end-to-end encryption adds extra security to your video calls.

“Only you and the participants can decrypt the meeting, unlike Zoom and third parties,” the service said.

As it is, end-to-end encryption is crippled by cloud-based resources. This is the case with cloud recording and calls to phone numbers.
