Zoom now has a new feature which is for hosts to report meeting participants, which will help the company track down trolls who might want to take over Zoom calls and share inappropriate material. This practice is called “Zoombombing”. The reporting feature will be made available on April 26, which is Sunday.

“This feature will generate a report which will be sent to the Zoom Trust and Safety team to evaluate any misuse of the platform and block a user if necessary,” Zoom said.

Over the years, Zoom has undergone an increase in its usage amid the ongoing pandemic, making it a target of pranks and harassment via Zoombombing. To help prevent Zoombombing, the company turned on passwords and waiting rooms for meetings for free users and for users with a single license on Zoom’s cheapest paid line on April 5th.

They also took out Meeting IDs from meeting title bars. Prior to this, most people share screenshots of meetings on social media which can equally expose their personal data.
