Don’t be Zoombombed

Security concerns about uninvited intrusions into Zoom meetings are real. However, the LITS (Library and Information Technology Services) security team confirms that Zoom meets university security standards when properly used. Each time you log in, click “Sign in with SSO.”

If you are Zoombombed when hosting a call on an Emory-sponsored Zoom account, report the incident to the Emory Police Department at 404.727.6111 (TDD/TTY 404.320.1024) or by reporting the incident via LiveSafe.

If you have further questions or need assistance, please submit a request at
