Enabling and scheduling meetings with end-to-end encryption in the RingCentral mobile app 

Last updated on March 23, 2022

Table of contents

End-to-End Encryption (E2EE) is a feature that protects your video meeting content by making it accessible to participants only. With E2EE enabled, even if the RingCentral cloud is fully compromised, the attacker still can’t access your data.
 
With the End-to-End Encryption feature of the RingCentral mobile app, you can:
  • Ensure that only your participants can access meeting content.
  • Manage the confidentiality of audio, video, and chat of the meeting.
  • Protect your meeting contents even from service providers.
  • Enable and disable the feature at any time while in a meeting (Dynamic E2EE).
Anyone who has RingCentral login credentials will be able to join E2EE meetings. However, only users who belong to paid accounts can initiate E2EE meetings. This includes both free and paid users in those accounts. Scheduling and starting ad-hoc E2EE meetings are not available for free accounts.
 
Note: Users will not be able to join by telephone (SIP/H.323 devices) as these do not support RingCentral SDK to perform end-to-end encryption. You can also enable end-to-end encryption for your RingCentral Video meetings by signing in to your RingCentral online account
