Zoom Tips and Resources

The University of Arizona Office of Instruction & Assessment has put together several resources on using Zoom effectively and securely.

Prevent Zoombombing - someone hacking into your web meeting to share lewd and offensive content. This page provides a number of options, in order of importance. Note,

  • If you experience Zoombombing, report it to UA's Information Security Office
  • Make sure you install updates
  • Never put a Zoom link to a regular meeting on a public webpage or social media. A Zoom webinar license on a public page is okay as it has much tighter controls on what participants can do
  • Password-protect your meetings
  • Use a waiting room or lock the meeting (depending on number of participants)
  • Permanently remove problem participants
  • If all participants and hosts have a NetID then require NetID authentication (if any do not have a NetID then you cannot use authentication)
