With a surge in the usage of video conferencing apps, it’s only given that privacy and security would be ramped up. One of the most popular video conferencing apps currently used worldwide is Zoom, but it has been riddled with numerous issues. The company announced that it will take concrete steps to fix current security issues with its app and enhance its security over time. In an effort to deliver on its promise, all versions lower than Zoom 5.0 will cease to work from May 30.

There are startups, organisations, businesses, and individuals who rely on Zoom to stay connected. With over 300 million daily active participants, this figure is steadily growing. With the aim of enabling better security for its users, Zoom is implementing GCM or Galois/Counter Mode encryption. The new encryption protocol will enable AES 256-bit security for all accounts, which is good news for privacy-centric users.
