The FBI is reporting an increase in disruptions to online meeting spaces with pornographic and hate images, as well as threatening language. These disruptions are commonly known as Zoombombing. There are some simple things you can do to avoid disruptions in your online class or meeting:
- Don’t publish your meeting ID or link on a public internet site. Zoombombers look for meeting to disrupt on social media and other sites.
- Set a meeting password or enable the waiting room. This ensures that only participants you authorize can enter your meeting.
- Limit screen-sharing to the host. If you will not need your meeting participants to share their screen, enabling this setting can limit disruptions.
For comprehensive guidance on securing Zoom meetings, see the Missouri State knowledge base article Faculty/Staff Zoom Security Settings.
