Zoom has come under fire for several security concerns. Zoom’s CEO has acknowledged these issues and committed to shoring up the security of the application. We recognize that many of our clients are using and participating in Zoom meetings and we recommend some basic security measures that are available in the Zoom platform:
- Set up your own two-factor authentication: You don’t have to share the actual meeting link! Generate a random Meeting ID when scheduling your event and require a password to join. Then you can share that Meeting ID on Twitter but only send the password to join via DM.
- Use the Waiting Room, this is really a great way to screen who’s trying to enter your event and keep unwanted guests out.
- Lock the meeting: It’s always smart to lock your front door, even when you’re inside the house. When you lock a Zoom Meeting that’s already started, no new participants can join, even if they have the meeting ID and password (if you have required one). In the meeting, click Participants at the bottom of your Zoom window. In the Participants pop-up, click the button that says Lock Meeting.
