Getting Started

7-9-19 Attention
A same day exploit has been discovered that allows hackers to potentially hi jack your MAC video camera in a Zoom meeting
Fortunately this situation is easily prevented by taking the following precaution:
Open your Zoom application and click on Preferences in the menu in the upper right hand corner
In the resulting window choose Video, then Meetings in the pane in the center of the app
Check the box entitled "Turn off my video when joining a meeting"
You may turn your camera on manually when you wish to use it but this should prevent a bad actor from using it without your knowledge
You will now be required to turn your video camera on manually when you enter the meeting but the remote possibility that you may be pulled into an unwanted meeting with your camera on is eliminated.
  • 4,500 Pro licenses available to UNL faculty and staff: the pro license allows for meeting rooms with 100 attendees. 
  • UNL Zoom training available at go.unl.edu/learnzoom
  • To use Zoom service at UNL. Visit https://unl.zoom.us/ to claim your Zoom account.
