Zoom - Securing your Zoom Meeting

UW-Platteville offers the following tips for Zoom hosts to help secure their meetings

Make sure that your Zoom client is the most up-to-date version.

Check your Zoom account settings.

Consider disabling the following settings in your account settings:

Use a unique meeting ID for every meeting. 

Avoid publishing your meeting link where anyone can find it, like a website or public Facebook page. 

Enable the waiting room if you have a small number of participants that you can manage

Use a Co-Host or an Alternate Host to help monitor activity during your meeting if it is too large for you to manage yourself.

Lock the meeting once everyone has joined.
