Changing account settings
Account settings allow admins to change settings for all users in your account. You can also lock settings on or off to prevent users from changing them.
The account settings mirror the settings available for groups and for individual users. If not locked for the account or group, they can be adjusted by the individual user. This allows you to customize tiered settings.
- This article covers settings that are only available at the account level.
- In addition to these settings, you have access to the same settings as user-level settings.

How to access and change account settings

Your account settings will be listed under three tabs: Meeting, Recording, and Audio Conferencing.

- Click the lock icon to lock a setting. If you lock a setting, users on your account will not be able to change this setting individually and it will also be locked for all groups.
You can change the following settings. Some settings are dependent on certain prerequisites. If you do not see a setting listed for your group, review the article on the setting to see if your account meets those prerequisites.
Note: This article covers settings that are only available at the account level. In addition to these settings, account owners and admins can access user-level settings.

When a third participant joins a one-on-one meeting, it will use Zoom's cloud infrastructure instead of using a peer-to-peer connection.
