Zoom for Public Events
Protecting your meeting happens when you are initially scheduling the meeting. You can also set default meeting behaviors in your profile so that every future meeting you create inherits those settings.
Zoom events that are for the public can present a different set of challenges than a Zoom meeting used for class or a meeting. If you need to promote the event to the public you will need to take some extra precautions
Protect Your Zoom Meetings
- Use a unique Zoom Room ID
- Do not use your Personal Meeting ID (PMI) The PMI is your personal meeting space and
you shouldn’t promote the ID to the public via email lists, websites etc
- Do not enable join before host. If this is enabled the first person to join the meeting can become the host.
- Create a Waiting Room for Attendees
- Make Sure Only the Hosts Can Share Their Screen
- This is a global default but can be changed in your personal meeting preferences. Only turn this on if it is absolutely necessary.
- Lock a Meeting Once It Starts
- Once all of your participants have arrived, navigate to the Participants window and choose More > Lock Meeting
- Remove a Participant or Put on Hold
- As the meeting host, you do have the ability to remove someone from the meeting or put them on hold via the Participants panel. See: Managing participants in a meeting.
