ABOUT Zoom’s end-to-end encryption
Zoom has previously offered encryption for its calls, but the data was only encrypted between each meeting participant and Zoom’s servers, rather than being end-to-end encrypted between participants.
- E2E free accounts will need to verify their phone number using SMS and also need a valid billing option associated with their account.
- Zoom’s Basic or Pro plans, which max out at 100 participants.
- Zoom’s E2EE meetings support a maximum of 200 participants.
- Business or Enterprise subscribers which would otherwise allow for up to 300 or 500 participants.
WHAT ISN’T E2EE
Zoom says E2EE is supported across its Mac, PC, iOS, and Android apps, as well as Zoom Rooms, but not its web client or third-party clients that use the Zoom SDK.
E2EE meetings don’t work with cloud recording, live transcription, polling, meeting reactions, and join before host features.
Participants also won’t be able to join using “telephone, SIP/H.323 devices, on-premise configurations, or Lync/Skype clients,” as Zoom says these can’t be end-to-end encrypted.
