Dear Valued Customer,
We wanted to send a quick overview of the latest enhancements to ensure the security and privacy of Zoom. As part of our 90-day plan and commitment to our customers, we will be reaching out regularly with key information regarding the updates we are making to our product. For more information on these changes, please reference our Release Notes.
First, want to highlight an upcoming enhancement to our Global Network. Starting April 18th, you will be able to customize which data center regions your account can use for real-time meeting data in-transit. For more information, please visit our Blog or register to our “Ask Eric Anything” webinar on April 22 where Eric will touch more on this new security feature.
Configure meeting and webinar password requirements
Account owners and admins can now configure minimum meeting password requirements, including a minimum length, requiring letters, numbers, special characters, or only allowing numeric passwords. Past meetings scheduled with passwords will not be impacted.
Meeting IDs up to 11 digits in length
One-time random meetings IDs for newly scheduled meetings and webinars can now be up to 11 digits long. Your Personal Meeting ID (PMI) will remain the same and already scheduled meetings will not be impacted.
Password for Cloud Recordings
We updated password guidelines for hosts when sharing their cloud recordings for meetings and webinars. Default will now be ON, and require a complex password to access a shared recording. Existing shared recordings will not be impacted.
Re-enable Third-party File Sharing
We have restored the functionality to share files from third-party platforms, such as Dropbox or OneDrive if configured for their Zoom account, for users on version 4.6.11.
Performance Tuning for Dashboard Data
Fixed performance issues related to missing data and delay on dashboard and reporting. We will continue to make improvements to this area.
App version is accurately reflected in all areas.
Message Preview Control (Only Applicable to Zoom Chat Users)
Users can enable or disable a setting to show a message preview for chat messages.
