Zoom tips

Most of our recent interactions with colleagues and students have been through our computer screen. The news and our social media feeds are full of warnings about “Zoom-bombing”, referring to Zoom meetings. Unwanted guests can crash any event if we don’t follow these guidelines.

  • Set meeting passwords
  • Avoid sharing meeting or class details over social media or with people outside of your invitation list
  • During the meeting, review participant list and remove unwelcome visitors


  • Avoid "Zoombombing" by limiting who can present in large meetings


  • Zoom has provided a very good article on how to prevent zoombombing or other similar harassment from occurring during your zoom calls
