Zoom brings 2FA to mobile and desktop apps

The popular video-conferencing platform Zoom is adding support for two-factor authentication (2FA) to its apps for desktop and mobile. This will provide users with additional security after entering a password and can be turned on via Zoom Dashboard.

Up until now, Zoom offered 2FA on its web version only, but the change will bring it to all accounts (free and paid-for) on Windows, Mac, iOS and Android.

There are also more ways to receive an authentication code when signing in. As well as an authenticator app, such as Authy or Google Authenticator, Zoom has added support for SMS, meaning you can receive a security code through text message.

Zoom added end-to-end encryption and other security features back in June and looks to be improving the security of its platform even more.
