Providing consent to be recorded Follow

When joining a meeting that is already being recorded or the host begins recording, participants are asked to provide consent to being recorded. Depending on the account, admins can adjust this consent notification to only affect external participants, or apply to all meeting participants, internal or external alike. This notification can also be customized with additional information and a link, to a privacy policy, for example.

Note: If enabled by Zoom and an account admin, your microphone will be muted and your video will be off if you join a meeting with recording or live streaming already in progress. Once you provide consent, your microphone and video settings will revert back to the default for that meeting.
