Zoom 2FA

The Zoom announced that now supports two-factor authentication (2FA) on all accounts users to enhance their safety and protect them from violations and attempted identity theft.

So, to get one access in Zoom web portal, in desktop client, in mobile devices app or in the Zoom Room, in addition to his password he must also enter this unique code.

"With Zoom 2FA, users have the option to use authentication applications that support the protocol Time-Based One-Password Password (eg Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator and FreeOTP). They can also ask Zoom to send them a code via SMS or phone call", Explained Zoom.

"Zoom offers various authentication methods, such as SAML, OAuth, and / or password-based authentication, which can be enabled or disabled individually for one account".
