Would you keep your doors open for strangers to barge into your home? Of course, no! In this blog, we will briefly discuss about what Zoombombing is and how to avoid it.
Zoombombing is an internet prank or social engineering technique in which an unwanted or uninvited user interrupts an online meeting through the Zoom or
other video conference application.
The intruder typically joins in the meeting, often using a screen name unrelated to the meeting's participants, and then proceeds to share
pornographic or harassing content.
Research shows that 97.6 percent of remote workers would like to work remotely, at least some of the time, for the rest of their careers and this leads to a steady increase in the use of video conferencing software.
The companies and institutes using videoconferencing means to undertake their daily activities have done a lot of cost-cutting.
However, Zoombombing dampens the effort of most remote workers.
