How to start with Zoom security and privacy

With Zoom, you can easily conduct HD video meetings, share your screen, and have high-quality video conversations both at work and at home. As a meeting technology provider, Zoom offers a number of security features to help ensure that your meeting is secure, including in-meeting security options, administrative restrictions on the features available in meetings, and end-to-end encryption. There are also other safety tips available at the Zoom Trust Center that you may find useful. The steps in the new user guide will be able to help you get started getting the most out of your account as a new user.

Zoom security settings: how to use them

You can protect your account with Zoom privacy settings

Having a free account owner means that you have the ability to automatically enforce a password and a waiting room to protect your meetings. Zoom customers are able to upgrade their account in order to provide more protection for their accounts and set up two-factor authentication for Zoom to allow them to sign into Zoom applications. This feature is available only to Zoom paid customers. By accessing these additional resources you can further maintain the protection of your account.

You can schedule your meetings using the security settings

Ensure that you schedule the meeting so that participants must enter a password before joining the meeting or add them to a waiting room before entering the meeting.

What to do if you are contacted by Trust & Safety

It is important that you report inappropriate behaviors during your meeting. This will prevent your meeting from being disrupted. The Trust & Safety team can also be contacted if you suspect any fraudulent activity in your account or if you believe your account has been compromised.
