Zoom finally gets the functionality everyone wanted

With the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, video conferencing platforms saw exponential growth in demand, with Zoom being one of the most benefited. However, the security of conversations has always been one of the concerns raised.

However, this is now a thing of the past. Zoom announced the availability of end-to-end encryption for its chat rooms. From today, you can rest assured that no one will be able to know the content of your conversations.


End-to-end encryption will have to be manually enabled

Those responsible for Zoom today announced the arrival of the first phase of testing end-to-end encryption on the platform. Over the next 30 days, they will have user feedback so they can correct any problems with the functionality.

Therefore, whenever you want a video conference to remain completely anonymous, you will have to go to the settings and activate end-to-end encryption. This is a process that must be performed by all participants.


You will know that the feature is activated when you see a green shield in the upper left corner of your screen. A simple and effective way to notify Zoom users that their conversations will remain completely anonymous.

For this, Zoom servers will no longer have access to the decryption keys of all meetings held on its platform. These will only be on the side of the participants, ensuring that third parties do not have access to your conversations.

When functionality arrives

Zoom informs that end-to-end encryption will be available starting next week. Although in the testing phase, it appears that all users will be able to start enjoying this functionality.

It is also important to note that this feature will be available to free and paid users. A decision that the platform made after the controversy generated when it initially announced the functionality only for paid participants.
