Zoom Launches End-to-End Encryption for Free and Paid Users Globally New Encryption Feature in Technical Preview Offers Increased Privacy and Security for Your Zoom Sessions GlobeNewswire October 26, 2020 SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZM) today announced its new end-to-end encryption (E2EE) is now available to users globally, free and paid, for meetings with up to 200 participants. This feature is available immediately as a technical preview, meaning that the company is proactively soliciting feedback from users for the next 30 days. Starting today, E2EE is available on Zoom desktop client version 5.4.0 for Mac and PC, the Zoom Android app, and Zoom Rooms, with the Zoom iOS app pending Apple App Store approval. Zoom’s E2EE uses the same powerful 256-bit AES-GCM encryption that secures Zoom meetings by default. When users enable E2EE for their meetings, nobody except each participant -- not even Zoom’s meeting servers -- has access to the encryption keys that are used to encrypt the meeting.
