Zoom - Deactivate Join before host

Here you will find information on how to prevent participants from entering your personal meeting room before you have joined it as the host.

Norsk versjon: Zoom - Deaktiver Join before host

Join before host

If you are using a personal meeting room, a good start is to deactivate the "Enable join before host" setting. This will prevent others from using your personal meeting ID without you.

  1. Log in and navigate to Settings on the right-hand side of the Zoom web portal.
  2. Go to Schedule Meeting
    Arrow pointing to "schedule meeting" in the menu on the lefthand side of the screen.
  3. Make sure that Allow participants to join anytime is turned off.
    Arrow pointing to the toggle button next to "allow participants to join before host" on the bottom of the screen. The option has been deactivated; it is switched to the left and is grey.
