On Saturday, Glitschka shares a link to his Zoom video call in twitter, LinkedIn as well as Facebook profiles. Reports say that a lot of people tuned in. Unfortunately, one of the users took a chance to display the video while saying some neo-Nazi things. As per the news, the man did it in a French accent.
Furthermore, he commented on the screen with a racial disgrace. Von says this annoyed him much as he did not speculate such behavior. Glitschka also says it has been two and a half years since he started using the service until the zoom bomb.
As a result, Von is no longer interested in posting links in zoom. He says for those who are interested in joining the service, should consult him first.

According to the news, right now, the zoom app has over thirty-two million active users in a day. Statistics done on Wednesday by analyst Zane Chrane and Michelle Isaacs show that the users have increased much, almost ten times as they were a year ago.

You can decide to use a meeting lock which denies newcomers from joining after you get the target group.

No one will be able to take control of anything everyone is viewing on their computer. Visit the Zoom web settings and enable the restrictions. Finally, you can decide to use the waiting room feature. It is a virtual place where people congregate before a Zoom meeting. Here you will be able to vet before allowing anyone into a live session.
