What is Zoombombing and how do I prevent it?

The rapid adoption of Zoom video conferencing by universities across the country has helped facilitate remote teaching and work—including across all Pitt campuses. Unfortunately, this most useful tool has also become the target of “Zoombombing” by bad actors, a practice in which uninvited attendees disrupt a meeting by sharing inappropriate or offensive material.

Faculty, staff and students using Zoom should follow Pitt Information Technology’s guidance aimed at preventing Zoombombing. Pitt IT’s site also offers information on additional best practices for using Zoom.
