How do I make my meeting secure so I won't be interrupted?
The Lock/Unlock Meeting icon's purpose is to 'Lock' the meeting much
like you would lock a conference room door. While the meeting is locked no
additional Guests will be able to join the meeting.
Simply clicking the lock icon or button will lock the meeting to additional
guests entering the meeting. You will see the icon change from an unlocked
state to a locked state. While a meeting is locked, no new guests will be
able to connect to the meeting, even if the Access Code is correctly
entered. Similarly, any guest that leaves the meeting will not be allowed
access back in until it is unlocked.
See the details below for locking or unlocking a meeting.
Locking a Meeting
To lock the meeting to any new guests entering, click the lock
icon/button as shown below. Once the meeting is locked, no new guests will
be able to enter the meeting. Also, any guests that are disconnected will
not be able to re-enter the meeting until it is unlocked. The meeting lock
is only in effect while the meeting is active. Once the meeting is ended,
it will be unlocked for the next time it is hosted.
