Zoom to Provide E2EE to All

No Comments

End-to-end encryption will be available to everyone on Zoom

Zoom stirred up additional trouble for themselves in late May when they announced that only paying customers would receive end-to-end encryption (E2EE) when on Zoom calls.

This information caused severe backlash and several groups reached out to share their privacy concerns with Zoom.

Thankfully, on June 17, 2020, Zoom posted to their blog that they have identified a path forward that will allow them to offer E2EE to all users, regardless of whether those users are on the paid or free tier.

In order to make E2EE possible for everyone, Zoom will require Free/Basic users to participate in a one-time process that will prompt the user for additional pieces of information, such as verifying a phone number via text message.

Zoom will begin early beta testing of the E2EE feature in July of 2020.

Account administrators will be able to enable and disable E2EE on their account and group level.
