Don't Share Zoom Links in Public Places

People are looking to join and disrupt your Zoom sessions. How do they do it? They find your Zoom links posted on public places such as the Daily Digest, Twitter, and Facebook.

How do you avoid it? Don't post Zoom links on social media. Post an email address or form where people can request the Zoom link, then you can be a gatekeeper to your sessions.

Zoom also created an automated system that looks for public links. If it finds one, UTK OIT office may contact you. Learn more at Zoom's "How to Keep Uninvited Guests Out of Your Zoom Event" blog.
