Zoom Chat Advanced Encryption

Zoom advanced chat provides increased security protection

Overview

Advanced chat encryption will securely send chat messages between Zoom users. Encrypted messaging encrypts all chat messages using TLS 1.2 with Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit algorithm.

  • Zoom desktop client 
  • Windows: 4.1.8826.0925 or higher
  • macOS: 4.1.8826.0925 or higher
  • Zoom mobile app 
  • Android: 4.1.8855.0925 or higher
  • iOS: 4.1.8855.0925 or higher

Note: Some older versions of Zoom, including Windows and Mac version 3.5.37712.0111 or higher, iOS version 3.5.37749.0111 or higher, and Android version 3.5. 37712.0111, support advanced encrypted chats, but will not have full functionality.
