Zoom deploys two-factor authentication for all users
The developers have implemented two-factor authentication in Zoom for all accounts. The company hopes this will help prevent possible hacking problems.
After activation, the system will ask you to enter a one-time code from the mobile application authentication, SMS, or call. This method will prevent attackers from accessing your accounts.
2FA will be available for both the web version of the Zoom client and the mobile application. It supports a one-time password protocol (TOTP), so it can be used with applications such as Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, and FreeOTP. Zoom also supports authentication methods such as SAML, OAuth, and regular password authentication.
Earlier this year, Zoom said that video call encryption will only be available to paid users, but eventually, this option can be used by everyone.
