How to keep safe in your zoom meetings

We've put some top tips together to help you keep your zoom meetings safe and avoid any unexpected participants from joining in.

  • Enable a waiting room - this allows you to preview the participants coming in and choose who to allow into the meeting

  • Keep meeting info private: this means only those invited to the meeting can join.

  • Go further: Select Only authenticated users can join meetings or Require a password when scheduling new meetings.

  • Adjust default security settings: Click Settings > Profile > View Advanced Features and turn off Join Before Host.

  • Manage screen sharing: You do not want random people in your public session taking control of the screen and sharing unwanted content with the group. You can restrict this — before the meeting and during the meeting in the host control bar — so that you’re the only one who can screen share. If you disable screen sharing, the Whiteboard setting will be automatically disabled as well.

  • Don't forget to set screen sharing to Host Only, too.

  • Avoid using your Personal Meeting ID (PMI): Your PMI is basically one continuous meeting and you don’t want outsiders crashing your personal virtual space after your designated meeting is over.
