After the announcement of end-to-end encryption in May, the company finally announced its plans to start Phase 1 of rolling out to the Zoom app users from next week. The users have to enable end-to-end encryption(E2EE) at the account level and after that users have to opt-in to E2EE on a per-meeting basis.
Zoom end-to-end encryption feature will come in a technical preview in which users will be asked to provide their feedback after the first 30 days. Zoom users on free and paid plans can host up to 200 participants in an E2EE meeting when the feature will be available. Moreover, If you enable E2EE at the group-level then all the participants of the group must enable E2EE in the settings to join the meeting.
“End-to-end encryption is another stride toward making Zoom the most secure communications platform in the world, This phase of our E2EE offering provides the same security as existing end-to-end-encrypted messaging platforms, but with the video quality and scale that has made Zoom the communications solution of choice for hundreds of millions of people and the world’s largest enterprises.” – said Zoom CEO, Eric S. Yuan.
