Zoom announced that as of today it is adding two-factor authentication (2FA) support to all user accounts to facilitate their protection against security breaches and data theft.
With 2FA, Zoom users will have an extra level in the authentication process, preventing hackers from gaining control of their account by simply guessing their password or using compromised credentials.
This is because Zoom accounts will be more secure with 2FA. You will be prompted to enter a one-time password from a mobile authentication application or receive it via SMS or phone call. So in addition to the account password, you will need an additional password before you can log in to the Zoom application.
"Zoom offers a range of authentication methods, such as SAML, OAuth, or password authentication, that can be enabled or disabled individually for an account."
