Zoom Security Updates: New Security Icon

Posted on 4/10/2020 10:44:26 AM

Zoom has  implemented an important update to help make your meetings more private and secure. The most visible change that meeting hosts will see is an option in the Zoom meeting controls called Security. This new icon simplifies how hosts can quickly find and enable many of Zoom’s in-meeting security features.

By clicking the Security icon, hosts and co-hosts have an all-in-one place to quickly:

  • Lock the meeting
  • Enable the Waiting Room (even if it’s not already enabled)
  • Remove participants

Hosts and co-hosts can also restrict participants’ ability to:

  • Share their screens
  • Chat in a meeting
  • Rename themselves
  • Annotate on the host’s shared content

Read more about the new security update on the Zoom blog.
