Zoom Bombers

Hello

We facilitate AA meetings on Zoom and because of the open format and public posting of meetings we are a prime target for Zoom Bombers. We remove and report the Bombers when they come in.   We use all the available features to limit interruptions but they find ways around them. This post is not to illicit zoom 101 comments, it to hopefully be an online petition for Zoom to track the accounts, IP addresses, and other identifying factors of Bombers' to restrict their access to the platform. We have done all we can, we need Zoom to start removing bad actors. Please help!

 

Thanks

Agreed!  It is completely out of hand.

AA here also. We are plagued with bombers -- obscene images, awful noises, etc -- and somehow bombers are able to move their images quickly and repeatedly which makes it VERY difficult to kick them out of the meeting. It has really gotten out of hand and as far as I know, zoom offers no tools or techniques to deal with this plague. Having a waiting room is no help, as there is no way to inspect or interrogate individual entry requests.

What we have started doing is creating a breakout room. There is a greeter in the main room who asks each person to turn their camera in as they are let in from the waiting room.  If they are new to the meeting, we ask them a couple of questions and then send them into the meeting which takes place in the breakout room. This screening step has eliminated 99.9% of Zoom bombing attempts in our case.
