New updates for Web

Changes to existing features

  • AES 256-bit GCM encryption
    Zoom is upgrading to the AES 256-bit GCM encryption standard, which offers increased protection of your meeting data in transit and resistance against tampering. This provides confidentiality and integrity assurances on your Zoom Meeting, Zoom Video Webinar, and Zoom Phone data. GCM encryption requires Zoom client or Zoom Rooms version 5.0 to join any meeting. Learn more.

New and enhanced features

  • Administrator features
    • Setting to save screen sharing and whiteboard annotations
      Account owners and admins can now enable or disable a setting to save screen sharing and whiteboard annotations. This setting is enabled by default. It is available at the account, group, and user level and can be locked at the account or group level.
  • Web client features
    • Report a user during a meeting
      The meeting host can now report a user during a meeting by clicking on the Security icon, then Report. This feature will generate a report which will be sent to the Zoom Trust and Safety team to evaluate any misuse of the platform and block a user if necessary.
