For Zoom Users -
With virtual meetings on the rise and hackers showing up uninvited crashing conferences, we’ve put together best practices to prevent unwanted guests from joining. These steps can be applied to Zoom and other virtual conference platforms.
• Only share MeetingID with guests. If you're taking photo shoots of the
meeting attendees and sharing screen shots publicly, don't forget to crop off
• Require a password for all meetings
• Recommend using a unique MeetingID for each meeting. This setting will also
keep up-coming meeting attendees from joining when meetings run late.
• In Zoom “Settings” set the following features:
o Join before host: off
o Screen sharing (unless required for meeting): host only
o Require password: on
o Allow host to put attendees on hold: on
o Identify guest participants in the meeting webinar: on
o Waiting room: on
