Zoom Rolls Out Two-Factor Authentication For All Accounts

It can send codes via Google and other authenticators, or via an SMS or call.

Zoom has introduced two-factor authentication (2FA) for all user accounts, to make it easier to avoid “zoombombs” and other breaches of security. If the device is activated, users will be required to enter a unique code from a mobile authenticator app, SMS or phone call.

This in turn would block potential attackers from taking control of accounts using stolen or discarded passwords, as they will still need to have control over your mobile device.

Zoom Web Site, Online Computer, Mobile App and Zoom Room are available with 2FA. It supports the one-time password (TOTP) protocol based on time so it works with applications such as Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator and FreeOTP.The company also supports various authentication methods including SAML, OAuth and password-based authentication.

Zoom had courted controversy earlier this year by providing end-to – end video call encryption only to paying users, but it eventually relented and opened the functionality to everyone.Zoom introduced 2FA to all users at once this time, but setting it up is a slightly different process depending on whether you are a company administrator or individual user. Check out Zoom’s 2FA support center guide to get a comprehensive guide.
