Zoom error message "You are not eligible to sign up for Zoom at this time"

Last Updated:

You must be at least 16 years old before you can create a Zoom account. If you are creating a Zoom account for school use, the age requirement will be lifted if you are added to a school account. If you are creating a Zoom account independently, the age restriction will still apply. For more information, see Zoom’s Terms of Service.

Additionally, if you are trying to access Zoom from a restricted country, you will also be prevented from signing up for regulatory reasons.

How to fix it

If you receive this error because you entered an incorrect date of birth, clear Zoom cache and cookies from the settings before you enter the correct date of birth. If your date of birth is correct and you are not from a restricted country, follow the steps below before signing up again:

  • Uninstall the app, then download and reinstall it.
  • Use a different device or browser.
  • Switch to incognito mode

For additional troubleshooting, submit a request to Zoom Support.
