Zoom Recordings




Does Zoom automatically keep a copy of every meeting on their servers, in case of legal action?

I did not record the meeting myself, locally or in the cloud.


If yes, I want a copy of a meeting that I scheduled with others.

Is this possible via a simple request to Zoom or can an attorney request this from Zoom?


If not, since I did not ask Zoom to record the meeting, am I out of luck?


Thank you!

Unfortunately, Zoom only records meetings when the host explicitly tells the system to. There are no backup recordings available upon request. 

Zoom can provide other meeting details to law enforcement upon request, if there were cases of abuse or other serious issues.
