To increase the privacy of education meetings in Google Meet, anonymous users (those that are not signed into a G Suite or Google account) will no longer be able to join a meeting created by a UNLVMail or Rebelmail account. The change will prevent anonymous users from joining and disrupting the meeting, a behavior commonly referred to as “zoombombing.”
What does this mean for you?
- As a meeting organizer: When you create a meeting and share the meeting link, your participants must be signed in to a UNLVMail, Rebelmail, or personal Google account in order to join.
- As a meeting participant: When you join a meeting, you must be signed into a UNLVMail, Rebelmail, or personal Google account.
Google will begin rolling out the change today, although it may take up to 15 days for it to affect your account.
