Keeping UF Zoom class sessions private and secure is a top priority. There are settings in Zoom you can enable to insure the only attendees of your virtual lectures and labs are authorized to do so. To prevent uninvited guests from attending your Zoom class meetings, limit unwanted class disruptions, and block unauthorized sharing of your screen, UFIT recommends reviewing the https://elearning.ufl.edu/keep-zoom-secure/ page.
If you receive a Zoom meeting invitation and are unsure whether it is legitimate, please confirm with the meeting originator before clicking and joining the meeting. You can also check your Scheduled Meetings on the https://ufl.zoom.us/meeting page.
