Zoom announced that the company will now be providing its new end-to-end encryption security for all paid and free users. As we had previously reported, the aforementioned feature was initially scheduled for release back in July 2020, but only saw a rollout just recently.
To enable this feature, Zoom users will be required to turn on the end-to-end encryption feature from the Settings page. Upon doing so, other users who wish to participate in the same video conferencing room should also ensure that this feature is turned on at the same time.
Engadget notes that users will be able to spot a green shield icon situated at the top left corner of a call if this feature is turned on. If they wish to disable this feature for whatever reason, they can only do so before or after a meeting session.

The Zoom team is also hoping to receive significant feedback from all of its users based on their experience while utilising the end-to-end encryption feature within the video conferencing platform. With that said, if you are interested to provide your feedback to the team, simply navigate to the Settings page within the Zoom app and then select Feedback to begin.
At the time of writing, the end-to-end encryption feature is already available on the latest Zoom desktop client on Mac and PC, Android app, and Zoom Rooms. As for iOS device users, the aforementioned feature will only be provided after the company has gained approval from the Apple App Store.
