Video chat company Zoom confirmed this week that it won’t allow end-to-end encryption to be free of charge. This is partly because it wants to give law enforcement access to these calls if necessary.
Zoom CEO Eric Yuan said they think this feature should be a part of their offering for professional customers. They don’t want to give it to free users, because they also want to work together with the FBI. They also want to work with local law enforcement, in case some people use Zoom for malicious purposes.
