While the video and audio call on Zoom currently support 128-bit encryption; post the update, the platform is said to offer 256-bit encryption for both audio and video calls.

Besides, this is a must if you are a regular user of this platform and rely on it primarily for the online meets and video conferencing. This is a welcome move by the company with all the raising concerns around security on its platform.
