New Zoom admin feature ensures greater security

Tuesday, October 6, 2020

Beginning November 2020, Zoom will introduce a new admin feature to increase meeting security.

This new admin feature will be “Off” by default, but it is highly recommended that Zoom Unit Administrators enable it.

Enabling this feature will ensure all meetings have applied at least one of the following security settings: a Passcode, a Waiting Room, or an option where “Only authenticated users can join.”

Enabling one or more of these settings ensures greater security for your Zoom sessions and helps prevent unwanted users from joining your meetings.
