How long does Zoom Desktop Client stay signed in for?


Can someone tell me the exact amount of time the Zoom Desktop Client stays signed in for? I need this info to document as part of an application review, and I can't find it anywhere. 

Besides clicking the Log Out button, what triggers the desktop client to sign out automatically?

Welcome to the Zoom Community, @cpredo 


I’ve been using the Zoom Desktop App for years, and I don’t think I’ve ever noticed it log out. It’s an app, like Outlook, Excel, a browser… it maintains state by connecting regularly to the server, and downloads new items in Team Chat, the Meetings and Webinars list, SMS messages, etc. 


The Web client will require re-authentication if there’s no activity during the cookie expiration time, which varies by site. The stays logged in longer than the site.
