Zoom Launches Two-Factor Authentification For All Accounts

0 8

Zoom Launches Two-Factor: Zoom just revealed two-factor authentification (2FA) for all user’s accounts, to make it easier to prevent “zoo bombing” and other forms of security interference. Once activated, the system will require users to enter a one-time code from a mobile authentification app, SMS, or even phone call. That in turn will block potential attackers from taking possession of accounts using stolen or recycled credentials, as they’d also need to have control of your mobile device.

2FA is available for Zoom’s web portal, desktop client, mobile app, and the Zoom Room. It supports the one-time password (OTP) protocol, so it works with apps like Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, and FreeOTP. The company also works with various authentification methods including SAML, OAuth, and password-based authentication.

Earlier in 2020, Zoom courted controversy by offering end-to-end video call encryption to paid users only but it eventually fell and released the feature to everyone. This time, the company rolls out 2FA to all users at once, but setting it up is a different procedure entirely depending on whether you’re a business admin or individual user.
