Tips to Avoid "Zoombombing"

Many of us are now using Zoom to conduct both meetings and classes, "Zoombombing" is a new form of trolling in which a participant uses Zoom's screensharing feature to interrupt and disrupt meetings and classes. Here are some tips for guarding against this.

  1. Don't post Zoom URLs in public spaces.  Not twitter, not forums, not open.  Share only with meeting attendees.
  2. Use Advanced Settings to ensure that Who can share? Is set to Host Only.
  3. Don't use a Personal Meeting ID for Zoom meetings.  These are easy to find and hack.  The default Zoom Meeting IDs are randomized, and difficult to find and hack.
  4. Use Require Meeting Password to be doubly careful.  Include the password with the Zoom URL when sending invitations.
  5. Use the Waiting Room feature to control who enters your Zoom. 
  6. Use Advanced Settings to disable file transfer. 
  7. Lock the meeting after it starts.  Look under Participants at the bottom of the Zoom window.  You can lock the door here."
