Zoom announced Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) for all users that let admins and organizations prevent security breaches & data thefts.

The 2FA brings an additional security layer to the authentication process, blocking attackers from taking control of meetings by guessing the password or using compromised credentials.

“With Zoom’s 2FA, users have the option to use authentication apps that support Time-Based One-Time Password (TOTP) protocol (such as Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, and FreeOTP), or have Zoom send a code via SMS or phone call, as the second factor of the account authentication process,” Zoom explained in an announcement published today.

How to Enable Zoom’s 2FA

Zoom offers a range of authentication methods such as SAML, OAuth, and/or password-based authentication, which can be individually enabled or disabled for an account.

Zoom Two-factor Authentication

To enable Zoom’s 2FA at the account-level for password-based authentication, account admins should take the following steps:

  • Sign in to the Zoom Dashboard
  • In the navigation menu, click Advanced, then Security.
  • Make sure the Sign in with Two-Factor Authentication option is enabled.
