Free Zoom Accounts Will Get Three More Security Features On May 9 As The Company Continues Its Efforts To Boost Privacy Protections And Fight Abuse Like Zoom-Bombing
The 3 Security Features are:
- Passwords will be required for all meetings, including new meetings, previously scheduled meetings, and those using PMI
- Waiting Rooms for PMI will be turned on by default
- Screen sharing privileges will be Host Only by default
You got a standard link for all your meetings, meaning you only had one ID to note and share with people whenever you wanted to host a meeting, but anyone who participated in any of your meetings could try the same link another time.
Coupled to the old default of no password needed, that meant anyone who had taken part in one of your meetings, or had the link shared with them by a participant, could join a different one another time.
Both Free Zoom accounts and paid ones can take advantage of other protections against Zoom-bombing, in particular locking the meeting once everyone has arrived at the meeting has started, and automatically muting participants on entry so that nobody can say anything until you have approved them.
