The Watermark feature superimposes an image, consisting of a portion of a meeting participant’s own email address, onto the shared content they are viewing and the video of the person who is sharing their screen.
Note: After November 4, 2017 enabling Zoom features uses Tiered Settings. Previously configured settings for the Watermark feature will continue to work in the same way. Changes made by an administrator might affect meetings and webinars that use this setting.
- PC Version 3.5.44008.0314 or higher
- Mac Version 3.5.44022.0314 or higher
Note that in versions below 4.1, the watermark is included only on the shared content and not on the active speaker video.
Enabling Watermark on Your Account
To enable the Watermark feature for all members of your organization:
- Sign into the Zoom web portal as an administrator with the privilege to edit Account settings, and click Account Settings.
- Navigate to the Add watermark option on the Meeting tab and verify that the setting is enabled.
If the setting is disabled, click the Status toggle to enable it. If a verification dialog displays, choose Turn On to verify the change.
- (Optional) If you want to make this setting mandatory for all users in your account, click the lock icon, and then click Lock to confirm the setting.
Using the Watermark feature
- Schedule a meeting.
- Enable Only signed-in users with specified domains can join meetings and Enable watermark when viewing the shared screen in the Meeting Options section.
Note: If you cannot enable Only signed-in users with specified domains can join meetings and Enable watermark when viewing the shared screen, you will need to contact your Zoom administrator to make changes.
When a participant shares their screen during a meeting, a portion of the user’s email who is viewing the content will be imposed on the shared content, as well as on the video of the active speaker. For example, if firstname.lastname@example.org is viewing shared content, a watermark with the word admin will be imposed on the shared content and on the video of the active speaker.
