Restrict Access to Join a Meeting Follow


By default, anyone with the join link or meeting ID can join a meeting or webinar hosted by users on your account, even if they are not signed into Zoom. You have the option to restrict meeting or webinar participants to users who are signed into Zoom. You can also restrict participation even further, to those who are signed in from a specific set of email address domains.

This article covers:


  • Owner or Admin Privileges on the Zoom Account
  • Free with Credit Card Verification, Pro, Business, Education or API Partner Plan
