How to Prevent Zoom Bombing: 7 Simple Tips

With so many people now working remotely from their workplace, it has become common for businesspeople and clients to transfer their meetings to online via internet software such as Skype and Zoom. Trouble is, internet trolls are crashing Zoom video conferences and flooding them with inappropriate content. Here are seven easy ways to protect your meetings from Zoom bombers: Never use your personal meeting ID (generate a random one); Always use a meeting password and send it out to attendees in a separate email; Advise your attendees to use the name they have registered under as their display name; Use Zoom's waiting room feature (and if you don't recognise someone, don't let them in); Mute audio and disable video for meeting attendees; Turn off screen sharing for everyone but the meeting host/co-host; Always look professional (at least from the waist up), as you never know when you will have to start video.   Source: Brandon Vigliarolo, TechRepulic Zoom bombing tips
