Zoom Meeting and Virtual Class Security

Tags secure

Zoom offers multiple security options that can be configured when creating a meeting invitation or activated within an active meeting. Do NOT publicly post Zoom meeting links on social media, etc., unless everyone/anyone is invited.

Security options available when creating a meeting invitation (prevent Zoom bombing)

  • Generate a unique Meeting ID (so prior meeting links will not allow access)
  • Require a passcode to enter the meeting
  • Require a waiting room (so, you must admit people into the meeting)
  • Require participants to be logged in (either with any Zoom account or a UTRGV account)
  • Do NOT publicly post Zoom meeting links on social media, etc., unless everyone/anyone is invited.

Security options once a meeting has started - using the Zoom Security Toolbar or Participant List

In-meeting security options for hosts/co-hosts: 

  • Select Security (shield icon) at the bottom of your meeting screen and select Lock meeting or Enable Waiting Room.  You can also select what participants can do such as share screen, chat, un-mute themselves, etc.
  • From the participant list, select More next to a name and select put in waiting room or remove
