The pandemic has made Zoom one of the most popular video conferencing applications. When it comes to video conferencing apps, we always try to make sure our privacy settings are up to the mark to keep the communications secure.

Zoom is trying to ensure that users get the security they deserve, and it has an essential encryption feature that many people don’t know about. End-to-end encryption ensures that even if you are hacked, the hacker will not be able to make any sense out of your data. It also keeps your data safe from the company itself.
