Popular video conference app, Zoom‘s end-to-end encryption, or E2EE, has finally arrived for their software according to official announcement on June 17.

It will be provided to both free and paid users, as long as their account has passed the company’s verification process.

According to the announcement, during the beta phase that will start from July, users should verify their phone numbers via a text message.
