Zoom lied to users about end-to-end encryption for years, FTC says

after reaching a settlement with the Federal Trade Commission, Zoom has agreed to upgrade its security practices to what it has been promising its customers for years. Zoom has been reporting since 2016 that it offered ‘end-to-end, 256-bit encryption’ to its secure users. The truth is that while the video conferences are encrypted while in session, the criteria for calling it ‘end-to-end’ is definitely not applicable.
