Change Account Owner Follow


As the current account owner, you can change the owner to another user on your account. Only the account owner can change the account owner. Admins are not able to make this change.

If the account owner is no longer with the company and you still have access to their email address, you can reset their password to gain access to the Zoom account.

If the owner is no longer with the company and you cannot access their email, you create a ticket for assistance changing the owner. You will be required to verify your identity, relationship to the account, and billing information for your request to be considered.

You can check who is the owner on your Zoom account on your account profile page.
