Secure Your Online Spaces

Zoom at UMass Amherst is already configured to improve security and reduce the risk of disruptions, such as "Zoom bombing" attacks. We have a few recommended settings to further increase security. These additional options may make Zoom harder to use in some cases, and as a result, they are not enabled by default.
