Enabling Report to Zoom Follow

 Overview

As part of Zoom's in-meeting security features to help you keep your meetings secure, the meeting host can report a participant during a meeting. The host is able to select which participants they would like to report, include any written details, and add attachments. This report is automatically sent to the Zoom Trust and Safety team to evaluate any misuse of the platform and block a user if necessary.
