We’ve started to receive widespread reports of uninvited guests causing distractions and sharing explicit material in Zoom meetings. The default settings in Zoom are not sufficient enough to protect your classrooms from this behavior.
Here are a few suggestions that will prevent these events in the future:
- Enable the “Waiting Room” Zoom setting
- Avoid using your Personal Meeting ID to host public events
- Change “Who can share?” settings to “Host Only”
- Lock the meeting after all participants have joined
Zoom has created a blog post and a video with ways to prevent these incidents.
