Zoom Adds Two-Factor Authentication for Enhanced Account Security

# Click on the "Advanced" option followed by "Security" in the "Navigation" menu.

With the increased usage of Zoom, the company is launching new features and on and off to make this platform more user friendly and safe. They have been trying to strengthen the privacy and security of users by introducing several features every now and then.

As detailed in a blog post, users who opt to have the extra security layer can either use "authentication apps that support Time-Based One-Time Password (TOTP) protocol (such as Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, and FreeOTP)" or have Zoom send you a code "via SMS or phone call".

Once the user makes sure that the two-factor authentication is enabled all they have to do is either opt for all users in the account to enable 2FA or select users with specified roles or enable this for users belonging to varied groups. The popular video conferencing app allows for enabling 2FA only for users with specific roles or specific groups, apart from the option for enabling it for all users in one account. It will be particularly useful for organizations where sensitive and confidential data is being shared over Zoom meetings.

Reduced costs: For small businesses and schools, it can be expensive to pay for an SSO service. SAML, OAuth, and password-based authentication are a few methods you can enable to disabled from an account by an individual.

# You can also enable 2FA for people with specified roles by choosing "Enable 2FA for roles with the specified roles". You can also choose to get the OTP via SMS or phone call.

Account admins can enable 2FA from the Zoom Dashboard. Select specified roles and click OK.

There can be an option known as "Enable 2FA for customers which can be within the specific teams" and you can choose the specific group that may have this additional safety and then, you have to click on OK. It also seeks to spare users from constant password management.
