SDK initialization requires access to “Zoom Safe Meeting Storage” item in keychain

After updating to the most recent Zoom SDK release (v5.2), users now receive a prompt for keychain access when initializing the SDK. See screenshot below. I encountered this prompt on my project using the Electron SDK, but also was able to reproduce this on the Zoom macOS SDK sample application.

Why is this prompt/keychain access necessary after the latest update? How do we disable the prompt for our users to avoid confusion?


To Reproduce(If applicable)
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Download the latest zoom macOS sample app
  2. Run the sample app and attempt to initialize the SDK
  3. Prompt for confidential info in keychain will appear


Hi @tmiskiew,

Thanks for the post and pardon the late response. Please see my reply here: SDK initialization requires access to "Zoom Safe Meeting Storage" item in keychain for your question.
