Protecting Your Zoom Meeting

Concerned with keeping your Zoom hosted classes and meetings safe and secure? Zoom offers a number of features to help you safeguard your sessions. Find out how to set a password, control the screen, or create a waiting room to keep the intruders out.


Passcode/Waiting Room Changes – Update

Zoom will no longer be enforcing any changes related to Passcodes and Waiting Rooms. However, later this year they do intend to release an update adding a new option related to these security settings. The UMS Zoom Support Team will evaluate this update once it is available and will communicate out any changes that might impact the UMS community.
