Zoom Security

Best Practices for Securing Your Zoom Meetings

  • Do not share the Zoom meeting link on social media or other public forums
  • Avoid using your Personal Meeting ID (PMI) to host public events
  • Host and Co-Host Controls. When appropriate, assign a co-host to moderate the meeting. The co-host would be in responsible for:
    1. Allowing participants into the meeting from the waiting room
    2. Mute or Remove participants as needed
    3. Control screen sharing
    4. Control Annotation

Zoom Security Changes

  • All meetings will require a waiting room for non-GVSU participants: Meeting hosts will no longer be able to disable the option that would allow non-GVSU participants to join without being manually admitted. Users who are not in the GVSU domain or other approved domains will remain in the waiting room until a host or co-host admits them. For more guidance on how to use Meeting Rooms, please view: Zoom Waiting Rooms Tutorial. 
  • All meetings will require a passcode: Passcodes have always been a default with the ability to remove the option upon setting up a meeting.  Meeting organizers will no longer be able to disable the passcode requirement for instant meetings or scheduled meetings. For more guidance on meeting and webinar passcodes, please view: Zoom Passcodes Tutorial.
