Using Zoom for Your Online Bible Study? Watch Out for Bad Intruders
With so many churches taking services online, some have also held live Bible studies on web meeting platforms like Zoom. It's a great way to stay connected, but unfortunately there are reports of people purposely targeting web meeting platforms to speak and show hateful, even vile things to any meeting, including those with school children.
The easiest way to stop a foul actor from crashing your church meeting? Don't make your meeting link public. If you're using Zoom, they've got a great set of instructions to help ensure that you host only those with genuine interest in your meeting, and don't miss the suggestion to restrict screen sharing to keep control of the images your participants see. There's even a Waiting Room function to give you the opportunity to understand who wants access to your meeting.
