Adding audio watermark Follow

Overview

The audio watermark, or audio signature, embeds a user's personal information into the audio as an inaudible watermark if they record during a meeting. If the audio file is shared without permission, Zoom can help identify which participant recorded the meeting. 

Note: This option requires enabling the meeting options Only signed-in users can join the meeting or Only signed-in users with specified domains can join meetings.

  • Zoom desktop client
    • Windows: 4.3.46185.0120 or higher
