End-To-End Encrypted Chat Follow

Overview

End-To-End encrypted messaging will securely send chat messages between Zoom users. Encrypted messaging encrypts all chat messages using TLS 1.2 with Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit algorithm. 

If End-to-End Encrypted chat is enabled, users can still send files, pictures, emojis and screenshots. However, they will not be able to use the integrated GIPHY library. It is not possible to edit sent messages if End-to-End encryption is being used. 

Prerequisites

  • iOS Version 4.1.8855.0925 or higher
  • Android Version 4.1.8860.0925 or higher
