With more people using Zoom than ever before, the video-conferencing platform has become a target for unwanted attendees to try to interrupt meetings in a number of disruptive capacities. This gatecrashing, or “Zoom-bombing,” has been reported nationally, and has occurred at a number of other universities.
While the University of Nebraska has not yet received any reports of gatecrashing in NU Zoom meetings, we encourage everyone to be prepared and take a few preventative measures to avoid these unwanted disruptions as you set up your meetings. NU Information Technology Services has put together some best practices on ways to keep your Zoom activity safe.
ITS will keep you updated if Zoom takes any additional action to protect their service.
