April 4th Zoom Security Fix will affect our Online Meetings going forward.

What's New? Any zoom meeting that does not require participants register ahead of time, nor login with a zoom account, (anonymous access) will require a pass code for participants to enter. 

How does this affect our EAC Meeting ID?  You will be prompted to enter a pass code before joining the meeting room with other participants.  You may continue connecting via desktop, mobile device or telephone  without requiring a zoom account, just type in a screen name to protect your anonymity, etc. 

How does this benefit my Meeting/Group?  You may have seen media reports about 'Zoom Bombing' - where unwelcome participants jump on a publically published meeting ID with little to no security and 'bomb' the call by screen-sharing disturbing video content, calling in to verbal yell obcinities, etc. 
  • EAC has gone to great lengths to lock-down our own Zoom account to prevent these actions to occur by disabling and limiting those features these 'hackers' or bored teenagers are exploiting. 
  • The 4/4 Security Update from Zoom is a global update to all Basic/Pro user to fix their accounts to require passcodes, enable waiting rooms and a few other settings by default.  Which should greatly reduce reports of those being exploited by the 'zoom bombers' just because they have the good faith to try a new platform to more their bible study, school learning or other community group online.
So, what's the new Pass Code?  It's the 4-digit version of the Twelve and Twelve 

Join one of our online meetings this month and try it out for your self! :)
