Encrypted Calls & Communication
All calls (including audio/video) are secured with TLS and AES-128 encryption.
When screensharing, participants have the option to only share specific applications instead of the entire screen.
One-time Meeting ID
Generate one-time meeting IDs for instant meetings. These randomized IDs expire immediately once the instant meeting ends.
For an added layer of security, meeting passwords can be enabled for rooms by the room owner.
Room owners can enable ongoing access to a room for specific participants.
One-time Access Tokens
For each meeting, one-time access tokens are generated and accepted by TURN and media servers.
Once a meeting has been started, the session can be locked to only include participants in attendance.
While a meeting is running, any participant can be quickly removed with a click of a button.
Customer Data Storage
We store only the most basic user data (user profiles and metadata) in our database. Our servers only forward audio/video streams to the recipient – no processing or analyzing.
The room owner or admin can control when an incoming participant is allowed to join a meeting.
Note for enterprise network admins
Here is how to set-up your firewall:
Allow essential traffic for .around.co and .media.around.co
Around uses 2 external services:
These two services are non-essential for Around's main video call functionality, but are crucial for helping us improve our service quality and resolve any potential issues that may occur.
