Hacked meetings


Is it possible for someone to bypass the waiting room to get into a meeting? If so, can someone do that without being detected?

Hi @telehealth4 the only way to bypass would be as to who should go in the waiting room. 

  • Everyone: All participants joining your meeting will be admitted to the Waiting Room.
  • Users not in your account: Only participants who are not on your Zoom account or are not signed in will be admitted to the Waiting Room. If not signed in, they will have an option to sign in.
  • Users who are not in your account and not part of your allowed domains: Users who are on your account or signed in to a Zoom account at the domains you list will bypass the Waiting Room. After selecting this option, enter the domains, separating multiple domains by a comma. In addition, Approved SIP/H.323 Devices can be enabled, to have approved SIP/H.323 devices bypass the Waiting Room feature.


The host has the ability to Enabling and adding a co-host, which both co-host and hosts can start waiting room (co-hosts can place participants in waiting room or admit/remove participants from the waiting room).
