However, to take the benefit of such end-to-end- encrypted video conferencing mode users need to be a paid member. It is not available for free. Once users log in to their account it will generate cryptographic characters which are already stored in the network from before, establishing trust among the users. According to the deal between the two tech companies, Keybase will remain an auxiliary company of Zoom for securing their network. Nearly two dozen security engineers of Keybase will be employed by Zoom directly. So, you can now consider zoom to be a secured video conferencing platform and use it without worrying much.
