Zoom-bombing

Zoom-bombing

With millions of users now converting to virtual meetings in order to continue collaborating and serving their clients, new concerns have risen. “Zoom-bombing” is when a stranger joins a meeting just to wreak havoc on the participants by showing threatening or disheartening content.

Use the meeting features.

When your meeting starts, be sure to set these basic tools in place by clicking on “participants” and
the “more” menu. Use the “lock meeting” feature to lock the meeting down if everyone is in attendance so no extra people can join during the meeting. Elect to mute participants on entry so they cannot just start talking over you causing a disturbance. Zoom recently announced a 90 day freeze on new features to focus on fixing privacy and security issues. They are pushing new standards like passwords for meetings and default waiting rooms so meeting hosts will have to verify attendees.
