Zoom allows alerts to warn room owners regarding Zoombombing disruptions


Zoom’s new feature sends alerts to room owners if their Zoom meeting link has been posted online. The “At-Risk Meeting Notifier” runs on its backend servers and functions, by continuously scanning the social media public posts and public sites for the presence of Zoom meeting URLs. When the tool finds any Zoom links, it automatically sends warning emails to the meeting organizers. It informs that other people may try to access their meeting room and potentially disrupt the meeting.
