Zoom security – Simple instructions
For those who want to use Zoom for online meetings you may be concerned about “security” and how to eliminate problems. Really there is only one real potential problem , and that is people logging on and displaying inappropriate material. Here are a few things to do to eliminate or limit that possibility. I’ve provided a few screen shots to help.
- Require a real display name. No “Samsung S3” or “Frodo Baggins.”
- Use a “waiting room” or a password
- When you schedule a meeting the “waiting room’ box is already checked. no need to set that up. When you start the meeting and people join, they enter a “waiting room” where they wait to be added by you. When they join you are given an announcement “so and so is waiting to join your meeting.” At that point if you recognize their name feel free to add them. This way no nefarious actors can randomly join your meeting.
- Passwords are now the Zoom default. When you send out an invite simply give them the password. It’s an easy way to control who can access your meeting
- Kick people off who shouldn’t be there. You can “remove” and block people. So another simple response is to do so if someone hops on who shouldn’t be there.
