Google has added a new feature in Google Meet they will block anonymous users from joining video conferences that are organized by educational Institutes such as Schools, Colleges, and Universities.
The new security feature that is added by Google will prevent the users who are not signed in to a Google account from joining and violate the meeting that is organized by the Educational Institutes.
There are many cases seen in past days that students share the links on the different platform and asks pranksters to disrupt the meeting so that the meeting gets canceled earlier.
This type of practice in technical terms is called “Zoombombing” when an anonymous person joins the disrupt the video conferencing by playing pornographic video or loud sounds.
After seeing so many cases of Zoombombing Google said that they are rolling out a new feature that will prevent anonymous persons from joining in the Google Meet video conferencing that is organized by the Educational Institutes.
The feature will be turned on by default for all organizations with a G Suite for Education and G Suite Enterprise for Education license over the next 15 days
Google also said that there is no way to disable the feature until and unless the administrators personally contact Google to disable it and don’t want the protection.
Zoom also has rolled out several security features to protect the meetings against the Zoombombing.
