How can I prevent Zoom-bombing?

What is Zoom-bombing?

Zoom-bombing is when a person joins a Zoom meeting and shares unwanted content through video, audio, screensharing, screen annotation, chat, or file sharing.

(See: Zoom-bombing: When Videoconferences Go Wrong )

REMINDER: Never share a Zoom meeting link in a public setting, such as on social media or online bulletin boards, in blog posts or news articles, or on email lists with wide distribution.

To prevent Zoom-bombing, there are settings you can set before the Zoom class meeting begins to secure the online space, and steps you can take during teaching to shut down disruptive behavior.
