    Zoom Announces New Security Features To Report Disruptive Participants

     

    Zoom is one of the most popular video conferencing app that allows users to set up virtual video and audio conferencing, webinars, live chats and screen sharing. The platform is compatible with Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS, and Android. You don't need an account to attend a Zoom meetings.

    Now, Zoom released two new security features to remove and report disruptive meeting participants. The two new security enhancements includes:

    Suspend Participant Activities

    Under this feature, both hosts and co-hosts now have the option to temporarily pause their meeting and remove a disruptive participant. By clicking on "Suspend Participant Activities" option, all video, audio, in meeting chat, annotation, screen sharing, and recording during that time will stop, and Breakout Rooms will end.

    Hosts and co-hosts may resume their meeting by individually re-enabling the features they’d like to use. Zoom will also send them an email after the meeting to gather more information.

    The Suspend Participant Activities feature is enabled by default for all free and paid Zoom users.

    Report by Participants

    Along with Hosts and co-hosts, now meeting participants can also report a disruptive user directly from the Zoom client by clicking the top left Security badge. Account owners and admins can enable reporting capabilities for non-hosts in their web settings.

    Both of these new features are available on the Zoom desktop clients for Mac, PC, and Linux, and on mobile apps.

    Zoom also announces a new "At Risk Meeting Notifier" tool to identify which meetings may be at risk of being disrupted. The new tool scans public posts on social media sites and other public online resources for Zoom meeting links.

    When it finds publicly posted meeting information that indicates a given meeting may be at high risk of being disrupted, we notify account owners and admins by email.

    These tool also include deleting the vulnerable meeting and creating a new one with a new meeting ID, enabling security settings, or using another Zoom solution, like Zoom Video Webinars or OnZoom.

    One of the best way to keep your Zoom meeting secure is to never share your meeting ID or passcode on any public forum, including social media.
