Zoom adds two-factor authentication in its mobile and desktop apps

Zoom has recently added support for two-factor authentication (2FA) to its desktop and mobile applications, giving users the option of adding an extra layer of security. In a blog post the company said users can turn on the extra security via the Zoom Dashboard.

The company said: This isn’t the first time Zoom has offered support for 2FA, but previously, it’s been web-only, rather than being available through its desktop and mobile clients. Zoom said that all users will be able to access the new security feature, including those on the company’s free tier.

Now apart from addidng support for 2FA, Zoom is also giving users more ways to receive its one-time login codes. Previously, you only had the option of using an authentication app such as Google Authenticator to generate your code, but now, you can opt to receive them via SMS. 

Zoom has also added support for recovery codes, which you can use to regain access to your account if you lose your mobile device.

Earlier in June, the company announced it will soon roll out support for end-to-end encryption to its free users, and will also add features to cut down on unauthorized users gaining access to meetings.
