    Zoom Adds Two-Factor Authentication Method To Improve Security

     

    Zoom's New 2FA Feature Is Free For All Customers

    Zoom has launched two-factor authentication for better security and privacy of users. It will allow you to authenticate your account and other features, such as meetings, with an additional layer of security such as one time password, a prompt on a registered phone or device, or even fingerprints or voice.

    2FA is a secure login feature that helps identify online users through a process that requires them to present two or more pieces of information, evidence, credentials that can authenticate ownership of the account.

    The main benefits of introducing the 2FA feature on a platform is enhanced security. This provides a fool-proof way to validate users and protect against breaches.

    For organisations, two-factor authentication is a huge respite. Zoom says the two-factor authentication helps them "meet compliance obligations" that is needed for confidential or sensitive information being exchanged on the platform. The customer information also stays secure with Zoom's new security method. And finally, schools and small businesses get a free tool to prevent security breaches or hacks, so that they can stop paying for SSO services.
