Zoom offers a number of security settings to help you secure your meeting and avoid unwanted interruptions such as “Zoom-bombing” incidents. Below are recommended settings for a secure meeting.
- Enable a passcode and waiting room on your meeting. These can be turned on in your meeting settings.
- Require utah.edu authentication to join your meeting. This setting will require any participant to be signed into a utah.edu Zoom account in order to join your meeting. This setting can be found in your meeting settings.
- Avoid using your personal meeting id for public events.
- Avoid posting meeting id’s and join links on social media and other public forums.
- Require registration so you have a record of email addresses of users joining your meeting. This setting can be enabled in the meeting settings.
- While in your meeting, use the Security Button options to disable certain features for participants. The host can also lock the meeting from the Security Button once all invited participants have joined. Once a meeting is locked, no further participants can join the call. This option can be found in the Security Button.
- When screen sharing, the host or participant sharing their screen should disable annotation for others. This option can be accessed in the More button in the screen sharing controls when a user is sharing.

If you do experience a Zoom-bombing incident in your meeting, please report to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the Zoom meeting id, the host’s UNID and a description of what happened during the incident.
