Zoom Security Options

Zoom at Adelphi offers several features and options that can help you maintain the integrity of your Zoom meeting. Use the following tips to help prevent “Zoombombing”, where uninvited users enter your Zoom meeting to cause disruptions and display inappropriate content.

Before the Meeting Starts

Before your meeting begins, consider the following options to reduce the likelihood of disruptive and unwelcome participants joining your meeting.

  1. Log into Zoom
  2. Click Meetings.
  3. Click the name of the desired meeting.
  4. Click Edit this meeting.
  5. Check Require meeting password. In the resulting text field, enter the desired password.
  6. Click Save.
  7. Share this password with the participants you have invited

The waiting room holds all participants until you choose to admit them into the meeting.  You are able to admit people one at a time or as a group. This feature is turned on by default for all newly scheduled meetings. To enable the waiting room:

  1. Log into Zoom.
  2. Click Meetings.
  3. Click the name of the desired meeting.
  4. Click Edit this meeting.
  5. Check Enable waiting room.
  6. Click Save.

You can configure your meeting room so that every participant’s microphone is disabled when first joining. However, unless you have manually disabled the user’s microphone (see the During a Meeting Section), these participants can re-enable their audio once they’ve joined. To do this:

  1. Log into Zoom.
  2. Click Meetings.
  3. Click the name of the desired meeting.
  4. Click Edit this meeting.
  5. Check Mute participants upon entry.
  6. Click Save.

  1. Log into Zoom.
  2. Click Settings.
  3. In the “In Meeting (Basic)” section, ensure that Allow removed participants to rejoin is toggled off.

File Transfer allows participants to share files via the meeting chat.

  1. Log into Zoom.
  2. Click Settings.
  3. In the “In Meeting (Basic)” section, ensure that File transfer is toggled off.

Annotation allows participants to draw on a shared screen with their cursor.  Unfortunately this has been a highly abused feature in Zoombombings.

  1. Log into Zoom.
  2. Click Settings.
  3. In the “In Meeting (Basic)” section, ensure that Annotation is toggled off.

Virtual Backgrounds allow users to hide the environment surrounding their webcam’s view. Using inappropriate images as a Virtual background has become a common tactic in Zoombombings.

  1. Log into Zoom.
  2. Click Settings.
  3. In the “In Meeting (Basic)” section, ensure that Virtual Background is toggled off.

You can configure your meeting so individuals can’t attend unless they have registered. Participants register for meetings through a custom URL that Zoom generates for you. To register, participants must provide their first name, last name, and email address. Participants won’t be able to join unless they have an account with Zoom that matches the name and email they provide when registering.

  1. Log into Zoom.
  2. Click the name of the desired meeting.
  3. Click Edit this meeting.
  4. Scroll to the “Registration” section.
  5. Check Required.
  6. Click Save. The page will then refresh.
  7. In the “Invite Attendees” section, you should see a registration URL. To copy a default invitation template message that includes the registration URL, click Copy the invitation. In the resulting window, select Copy Meeting Invitation. You can then paste the message into an email message, Moodle announcement, etc.

What you can do during a meeting

There are many features a host can use to handle a mid-meeting disruption. Familiarize yourself with these options to quickly resolve an issue with an unwanted guest or even a participant with lots of background noise.

To mute a participant:

  1. In the Zoom meeting window, click Manage Participants. A tab called Participants will appear.
  2. Hover over the name of the desired participant and select More.
  3. Click Mute.

To mute all participants:

  1. In the Zoom meeting window, click Manage Participants. A tab called Participants will appear.
  2. Click Mute All.

You can prevent participants from unmuting themselves via the Participants tab and the More menu at the bottom.

To disable a participant’s video feed:

  1. In the Zoom meeting window, click Manage Participants. A tab called Participants should appear on the right.
  2. Hover over the name of the desired participant and select More.
  3. Click Stop Video.

To remove a participant from the meeting:

  1. In the Zoom meeting window, click Manage Participants. A tab called Participants should appear on the right.
  2. Hover over the name of the desired participant and select More.
  3. Click Remove.

Depending on the size of your meeting, it may be difficult to both run your session and moderate your participants. A co-host can help with these responsibilities. To share host privileges with an additional person(s):

  1. In the Zoom meeting window, click Manage Participants. A tab called Participants should appear on the right.
  2. Hover over the name of the desired co-host and select More.
  3. Click Make Co-Host.

Once a meeting is locked, no one else can join. To lock your meeting:

  1. In the Zoom meeting window, click Manage Participants. A tab called Participants should appear on the right.
  2. Click More in the bottom right.
  3. Click Lock Meeting.

Zoom has announced that in the next update the meeting host will have a Security option in their meeting controls.  This tab will show all of Zoom’s existing in-meeting security controls in one place. This will include locking the meeting, enabling Waiting Room, and more.
