Some individuals have been hunting down public and insecure Zoom meetings and letting themselves in, then “bombing” other people on the call with graphic videos, pornography and other inappropriate content. The team behind Zoom is also making regular improvements to secure your calls and keep them safe.
As well as removing them from the call, you can now send a report to the Zoom Trust and Safety team to handle misuse of the system.
