Zoom is primarily a tool for teaching and the service has a limited number of licenses. If you are an employee of the university and need to have an e-meeting with other employees, please use the Microsoft Teams tool instead, which does not have such restrictions, so that you do not use the Zoom licenses needed for student teaching.

Zoom has been criticized for lack of security. However, if you arrange a meeting or teaching in Zoom yourself, you can go a long way in improving security by giving the meeting itself an adequate level of security, and this requires that you activate some alternatives.

By Zoom bombing is meant when (uninvited) people connect to and disrupt a meeting, by writing things in the chat or displaying irrelevant pictures in the meeting. This can be avoided by ensuring that only invited participants at the meeting, for example, by activating a waiting room for the meeting, enabling wait for host or setting a password for the meeting.
