Do you use Zoom? If so, you need to update immediately or it will not function on older versions of the app from today!
Zoom has recently added new security updates and features to its app so you need to update immediately if you want to be able to still use it.
To counteract security issues, Zoom has been working to introduce changes that will put a stop to this problem such as “zoombombing”, in its Zoom 5.0 update.
Zoom 5.0 added new encryption to calls on the platform to increase the protection of meeting content and users.
Other changes include better security powers to hosts such as being able to lock meeting rooms, enable waiting rooms so they can verify each participant, remove and report rogue participants and disable in-meeting chat.
However, in order to retain your access to the platform, you must be using the latest version of the platform. Zoom have confirmed that all users need to be Zoom 5.0 otherwise it will no longer function after today (Sat May 30th, 2020.
