A thumbs up emoji has appeared on my screen twice under Zoom meetings without any of the participants touching their keyboards. Does anyone know if this means we have been hacked?

On ipads the tablet can notice gestures and then convert it to a raise hand or a thumbs up. I don't have an ipad to find exactly what it says, anyway click Zoom - Settings - Meetings and then the last two options, and turn them both off. I think a shadow or movement will trigger the recognition thing.

Thank you so much, but we have been using laptops. Can the same happen on laptops? It seems unlikely.

Gesture recognition is only available in iPad. I would suggest raising a support ticket to investigate further. Please provide Meeting details (MeetingID, time/date etc).

Hi, The same thing keeps happening in a few of my meetings. I am running the latest version of Zoom and have enabled authentication for users. My clients are usually doing pushups or chest presses so there's no way they can press the thumbs up. How is this happening? I am using a MacBook Pro, some of them use iPads. I have not found anything further in the community so I was wondering if it got investigated.
Do I need to delete the meeting and create a new one?

Did you ever get an answer to this problem? It keeps happening to me too!

I have also now seen the hand raised emoji. We tried force cuing and gesturing but we can't make it happen on demand.
It is a little unnerving but I am not worried about it. I would still like to know how to stop it if there is a way.
It continues to happen on the iPad users side, never on my side.

Hope that helps
When in a meeting and you would like to enable the Zoom mobile app to recognize gestures:

Hi all I'm using a desktop Mac and since I updated Zoom a few weeks ago I am getting the buffering thumbs up regularly...and when it completes buffering, the thumbs up is showing up on my screen and so my clients see it during a therapy session. Kind of a problem. I uninstalled and reinstalled Zoom and same thing is happening. Advice?

Did you receive a reply? The same thing happened on a call I had this morning. I am using a MacBook Pro.

Hi Jennkd, it still happens to my clients using iPads but I think it's because they never changed their settings. It still never comes from my laptop, just from their iPads. Still a bother, but less of one now and we just laugh at it. We can never force it - it is always random and unintended. Sorry I can't help more!
