Well, a few days ago, Zoom8217;s chief executive put out a heartfelt blog post apologising for recent security issues including the issue of Zoombombing, where people enter chats they shouldn8217;t have access to.
Previously scheduled meetings (including those scheduled via your Personal Meeting ID) will have passwords enabled. So you can8217;t now just join a meeting with the Meeting ID 8211; you need the password number as well.
For meetings scheduled from now on, the meeting password can be found in the invitation. And if you create an instant meeting (an impromptu meet without an invitation), the password will be shown in the Zoom client in case you want others to join.
The Virtual Waiting Room has always been there, but many people have turned it off in the past. It8217;s now on by default, again to ensure people in the meeting are the people you actually want in the meeting.
The feature is exactly as it sounds 8211; a holding pen for people joining a meeting. The host then has to let them in when they are ready. The downside of this is that you might not realise that people are waiting, so as a host you need to watch out for them.
To admit participants into a meeting, a host needs to select Manage Participants (top right) to view the full list of participants. You can then admit individually by selecting the blue Admit button or all at once with the Admit All option.
