Participant's mike auto unmute during meeting despite all participants set to mute




I was co-host when I noticed this particular participant's mike kept on unmuting when thought we set everyone to auto mute. We had to mute him everytime he went on auto unmute.

Is this because his personal settings were set in a way that enables the system to umute itself when it detects some noise ?

Hi @Serena_SL2 


There are various ways that the participant could be unmuted from their side.  This may have been a faulty headset or them simply pressing the mute button without them know it.  Honestly cannot give you a solid answer on that without knowing the full participant setup.  There is however currently no functionality in Zoom itself to auto unmute when it hears you talking.


That said, you could uncheck the "Allow Participants to Unmute Themselves" during your next meeting to avoid this.  This will ensure that a participant needs to ask to be unmuted which could put some control back in your hands, depending on how you want to run the meeting.  Managing participants in a meeting – Zoom Support
