Zoom Unveils “5.0 Update” For Ensuring Users’ Safety and Privacy

Now, meeting hosts and co-hosts can report a user in their meeting who is misusing the Zoom platform

After facing several security and privacy issues, video meet app Zoom on Wednesday released a much-awaited 5.0 update to its popular video conferencing service with several security and privacy improvements.

The new features include improved AES 256-bit GCM encryption, data routing control, improved host controls and more for its over 300 million daily users globally. A system-wide account enablement to AES 256-bit GCM encryption will occur on May 30 and only Zoom clients on version 5.0 or later, including Zoom Rooms, will be able to join Zoom Meetings starting May 30, the company said in a statement.

Now, meeting hosts and co-hosts can report a user in their meeting who is misusing the Zoom platform. “Found in the Security icon, the option sends a report to Zoom’s Trust and Safety team for review. The report can include a specific offense, description, and optional screenshot,” informed the company.

With the new update, a new encryption shield appears in the upper left of your Zoom Meeting window and indicates a secure, encrypted meeting. After May 30, the shield will be green for all users, denoting enhanced GCM encryption. Clicking the icon also takes the user to the Statistics page for additional encryption details.

Additionally, meeting hosts can now select data center regions at the scheduling level for meetings and webinars. The Zoom client also shows which data centre the user is connected to in the Info icon in the upper left of your Zoom window.
