Secure Zoom Alternatives

While most of us already know about the privacy concerns surrounding Zoom video conferencing app, it’s time that you start looking for alternatives.

Yes, I may be a little late to the party because you might have come across some alternatives already. However, if you’re someone concerned about the security of your video calls, end-to-end encryption is a necessary feature to have.

So, in this article, I’m going to focus on listing only the alternatives to Zoom which provide end-to-end encryption for the video calls.

Best Secure Zoom Alternatives

1Jami

You may not have heard about this before – but it is an incredibly secure peer-to-peer video call (and messaging) service.

Just like how Torrents work – Jami relies on a distributed network. So, you will be able to directly communicate with your friends without anyone else knowing about it (not even the company).

It’s available on Android, iOS, Windows, Linux, and macOS.

Indeed, one of the best alternatives to Zoom that offers end-to-end encryption.

2Google Duo

While Google may not be the best privacy-friendly company you’d want to use – but the video calls using Google Duo are end-to-end encrypted.

It’s available on Android, iOS, and you can also use it on your desktop (through the web browser).

So, if you want to use a secure video call app to connect with your friends, family or colleagues, Google Duo is a solid option.

Jitsi Meet is an impressive open-source video conferencing solution that does not require you to create an account. While it offers much better security and privacy than Zoom, it also offers end-to-end encryption.

It is available for Android and iOS – in case you want to use your smartphones.

Even though the end-to-end encryption feature is still in development, you can explore more about it and try it out.

4FaceTime

If you have an iOS device and considering that the one you want to connect with also has an iOS device, the best solution would be to use FaceTime.

FaceTime also offers end-to-end encryption and is a fantastic secure alternative to Zoom.

Signal is already a quite popular secure messaging app. Not just limited to the texts but it also provides end-to-end encrypted voice/video calls.
