Zoom is the video-conferencing tool connecting many schools, teachers, students etc... These section will provide some tips to ensure everyone joining an event does so with good intentions and prevent your meeting from being hijacked. 

What is Zoom bombing?

A complete stranger can come to your meeting and chat with people in the meeting.

Anyone who knows how to create and join a zoom meeting, and has the zoom video link, can have access to join the meeting and shock other participants with unrelated and offensive content creating mayhem. 


A Few reminders on using Zoom to host public events:

  • When you share your meeting link on social media or other public forums, that makes your event extremely public. ANYONE with the link can join your meeting. Share your meeting link only through secure channels.
  • Familiarize yourself with Zoom’s settings and features so you understand how to protect your virtual space when you need to.
  • Stop other participants from screen sharing.

  • Control who enters a meeting with the Waiting Room feature.

  • Turn off File Transfer.

  • Lock the meeting after it starts.

  • Keep Zooming responsibly.

  • Password Protect your meetings.
