“Zoom- bombing” is the crashing of a digital meeting and doing things like screaming obscenities, broadcasting pornography, and otherwise interrupting people's attempts to talk to coworkers and students. It isn't necessarily harmful, but it's very disruptive. If you find yourself the victim of "Zoom-bombing" there are a few steps that you can take during the meeting and after the meeting.
NOTE: “Remove Participant” can also be found under the “Security” button on the toolbar.
*If the disruption is severe and you do not think you can get it back under control, click “End Meeting” and “End Meeting for all”. This will kick everyone out of the meeting and end it.
After you have dealt with the issue, please report the occurrence to the ITS Help Desk and provide the following information:
NOTE: If this happened in a meeting series (such as a regularly scheduled class) that didn’t require a meeting password, it is highly recommended that you cancel and reschedule your meetings using a password.
If you have questions, please contact the ITS Help Desk at 608.342.1400 or email@example.com. You may also visit the Help Desk on the first floor of the Karrmann Library.
