Zoom adds two-factor authentication: How to enable 2FA

After facing months of backlash for its security policies, Zoom has finally brought two-factor authentication to all users. The extra security measure will help prevent Zoomboming (when uninvited guests disrupt a call) and give users an added layer of privacy protection. 

Two-factor authentication is widely recommended by security experts for online services that hold personal or private information. When enabled, it requires you to input a one-time code from a mobile authenticator app, text message, or phone call as an extra step to verify the account holder. This way, an attacker can’t access your account even if they brute-forced your login credentials or stole them in a previous breach.
