Zoom boosts security with 2FA for all users


After suddenly hitting the big time during the coronavirus pandemic, video conferencing tool found itself the center of attention for both good and bad reasons.


While people welcome the app facilitating remote working, Zoom's security and privacy credentials were called in to questions in a series of incidents.


The company subsequently promised to take action to improve things in these areas, and over the summer there have been ongoing updates to Zoom.


The extra layer of security works with all variants of Zoom, from web and desktop, to mobile.


Two-factor authentication (2FA) is a two-step sign-in process that requires a one-time code from a mobile app or text message, in addition to the main Zoom sign-in.


This provides an additional layer of security since users will need access to their phone to sign in to the Zoom web portal, desktop client, mobile app, or Zoom Room.
