Zoom –  Best Practices to Avoid Zoombombing

While we have moved to meet virtually on campus with Zoom. We want you to be aware of how to protect your meeting from unwanted guests joining or Zoombombing. These attacks disrupt online Zoom classes by individuals spewing racist, misogynistic or screen sharing vulgar content. Not only can Zoombombing be disruptive on screen, but it can also cause problems in the chat room of the meeting. We’ve put together some best practices to help you address and avoid Zoombombing.

When sharing a meeting link on social media or other public forums, that makes your event extremely public. ANYONE with the link can join your meeting. We recommend not sharing Zoom meeting links on social media.

  • Enable Meeting Password – When scheduling a meeting you can require a meeting password. This setting will create a layer of security for your meeting. Avoid using your Personal Meeting ID (PMI) when hosting public events.
  • Enable Waiting Room – The waiting room feature will allow you as the host to control when a participant can join a meeting. This can be turned on under meeting options when scheduling a meeting. View the training video to learn more about meeting controls.
  • Enable Only Authenticated Users Can Join – With this feature participants must log in with their UUID and password before joining a meeting. This can be turned on under meeting options when scheduling a meeting.

Here are a few other preventive measures to keep in mind when conducting a virtual meeting in Zoom:

  • Allow only signed-in users to join your meeting
  • Manage your screen sharing
  • Lock the meeting
  • Remove unwanted or disruptive participants and prevent them from rejoining
Disable Video and prevent users from screen sharing
  • Mute participants on entry
  • Turn off File Transfer feature
  • Turn off Annotation
  • Disable Private Chat
Use the Waiting Room

Additionally, Zoom has developed a blog that helps to define how to prevent Zoombombing.
