Zoom is one of the applications that has taken a great boom due to global circumstances regarding the need to communicate with other users and therefore it is a privacy and security risk since many of the meetings organized in Zoom are sensitive or they mention confidential data. This is why Zoom has now integrated two-factor authentication (2FA) for both the web client and desktop and mobile applications like Zoom..

 

This functionality was present but only for the web client, but is now replicated for mobile applications when logged in with that account. We will learn how to activate two- factor authentication in Zoom which applies to SMS, password or the use of the app.
