Update Zoom for easier, more secure meetings

Last week, Zoom released an important update to help make meetings more private and secure.

Please update to the latest version of Zoom.

The most noticeable change is a new "Security" icon in Zoom meeting controls where the host/co-hosts can:

  • Lock the meeting 
  • Enable/Disable the Waiting Room 
  • Remove participants 
  • Restrict participants’ ability to:
    • Share their screens
    • Chat in a meeting
    • Rename themselves
    • Annotate on the host’s shared content

In addition, all Zoom meetings created AFTER April 20th, will have waiting rooms on by default.
