How to get started with Zoom security and privacy
With Zoom, you can easily hold HD video conferences, share your screen, and have high-quality video calls at work or at home. As a meeting technology provider, Zoom offers a range of security features to ensure your meeting is secure, including meeting security options, administrative restrictions on the features available in meetings, and end-to-end encryption. There are also other security tips in the Zoom Trust Center that you may find useful. The steps in the new user guide can help you get the most out of your account as a new user.
Zoom security settings: how to use them
You can protect your account with Zoom’s privacy settings
Being a free account holder means you have the ability to automatically enforce a password and waiting room to protect your meetings. Zoom customers can upgrade their account to provide more security for their accounts and set up two-factor authentication for Zoom so they can log into Zoom applications. This feature is only available to paid Zoom customers. Access to these additional resources allows you to continue to protect your account.
You can schedule your meetings using the security settings
Make sure to schedule the meeting to require attendees to enter a password before joining the meeting, or add them to a waiting room before joining the meeting.

What to do if you are contacted by Trust & Safety?
It is important that you report inappropriate behavior during your meeting. This will prevent your meeting from being interrupted. The Trust & Safety team may also be contacted if you suspect fraudulent activity on your account or if you believe your account has been compromised.
