New Zoom users may want to attend a Zoom Practice Session or practice Zoom with a small group of students or colleagues.
"Zoom-Bombing" refers to when an unwelcome user joins a Zoom meeting, usually with the intention of sharing inappropriate images. Most instances have involved large public meetings, however, several Emory College Zoom meetings have also been subject to these attacks. Please use the resources below to prevent this from happening.
In most instances, a good approach is to use the Waiting Room option that allows authenticated users (i.e. those using an Emory Zoom account) to automatically join a meeting, while outside users must wait in the waiting room until approved to enter the meeting. Setting up meetings with passwords is also wise.
