Zoom Background: Nothing can stop us from being productive, not even the current lockdown. Luckily, we have the easiest way to catch up with friends and colleagues online. Zoom is a conferencing platform that is commonly used for video and audio meetings. This is also the fastest and cheapest way to manage every business online.
In the last few months, this platform has been the niche of million users around the world to take part in meetings, classes, and even seminars. But what if we’ll tell you that there’s a fun part in attending long meetings? And that is just by changing the background? Yes, you read it right.
Here are the steps on how to make Zoom Background:
- Sign in to the Zoom web portal.
- Click My Meeting Settings, if you are an account administrator or Meeting Settings, if you are an account member.
- Navigate to the Virtual Background option on the Meeting tab and verify that the setting is enabled.
- If the setting is disabled, click the Status toggle to enable it. If a verification dialog displays, choose Turn On to verify the change.
- If the option is grayed out, it has been locked at either the Group or Account level, and you will need to contact your Zoom administrator.
Note: You must log out of the Zoom Desktop Client and login to it again for this setting to take effect.
Zoom App: Two-Factor Authentication For Dual Security
Zoom App has added two-factor authentication to strengthen the security of its users. This 2FA factor that was added to Zoom desktop and mobile applications will give the users the option to add another way of security in their account aside from the standard password. The company has confirmed this additional feature through its own Zoom dashboard.
Actually, this is not the first time that Zoom roll out the 2FA method. They have implemented this one on the Zoom website. And only just recently, that they have also rolled out this one for their desktop and mobile clients, including the company’s free tier.
Before launching this new feature, Zoom users only had one option in using an authentication app like the Google Authenticator to generate their code. They will then receive it via SMS. However, there are still trust issues in using this code, for this can make the codes easier to intercept. These are Zoom’s latest course of action after facing the privacy and security backlash last few months.
