Zoom Adding End-to-end Encryption

Been following this for some time.   I like Zoom, my favorite to date of the half dozen commonly in use methods I know of.     Now even free users can turn on advanced end to end encryption.   Very powerful encryption, though it must be specifically turned on.   Other vendors are adding other interesting, more text analytic  'business' functions  that are interesting,  but not aimed at the average user. 

Zoom starts rolling out end-to-end encryption

E2EE is available as a technical preview for free and paid users.    By Kris Holt, @krisholt   in Engadget

Zoom is now rolling out end-to-end encryption (E2EE) for both free and paid users, so your video chats and meetings should be much more secure. You can activate E2EE on Zoom’s latest desktop client, Android app and Zoom Rooms starting today. It’ll be available on iOS soon after Apple approves an app update.

You’ll need to manually switch on E2EE in your settings, and all meeting participants will need to do so for their calls to use that level of encryption. You’ll know E2EE is active if you spot a green shield icon in the top left of your call.  .... '
