Zoom rolls out security enhancements to stop zoombombing trolls

Zoom has rolled out two new security features to help prevent “zoombombers” from disrupting your meetings. The first feature is called “suspend participant activities”, and it allows hosts and co-hosts to pause the meeting by ending all video, audio, in-meeting, annotation, screen sharing, recording, and Breakout Room activities. Hosts and co-hosts can then remove and report whoever is disrupting the meeting to the Zoom Trust & Safety team. The second feature is called “report by participants”, and when enabled by an admin, allows all participants of a meeting to report anyone purposefully disrupting a meeting by clicking the security badge found in the top left-hand corner of the Zoom client. These new features are available to all Zoom users on the desktop clients for Windows, macOS, Linux, and the mobile apps for iOS and Android. Web client and VDI users will get access to these features later in the year. For more information, feel free to check out the link below.
