Zoom is Going to Absolutely Free End to End Encryption for Users in July

Since security problems started appearing some months ago, Z00m’s credibility was called into question. Despite the publication on its web site, the video conference application was criticized for its lack of end to end encryption, which led to false advertising and many more security violations. It was also criticized.

Zoom then revealed that it would only give paying users end-to – end encryption, but recent reports suggested that everyone would receive the security option now. At the beginning, the end-to – end encryption will be implemented to a beta of paid and free accounts.

The announcement comes from one of Zoom’s recent blog posts in which it said:

Today, Zoom released an updated E2EE design on GitHub. We are also pleased to share that we have identified a path forward that balances the legitimate right of all users to privacy and the safety of users on our platform. This will enable us to offer E2EE as an advanced add-on feature for all of our users around the globe – free and paid – while maintaining the ability to prevent and fight abuse on our platform.

Zoom says that E2EE will start rolling out by next month and every user will have access to AES 256 GCM transport encryption. The company claims that it will be one of the strongest modern-day encryption services availabe in the industry. Once it rolls out, E2EE will be optional as it will limit video calling functionality.
