You control nearly every aspect of the meeting, including when it begins and ends.

Follow the security best practices for to protect your attendees, and keep meetings and your information secure

  • Do not post your meeting information anywhere. Especially on social media.
  • Do not share your audio PIN, meeting host key, or Personal Room host PIN with anyone.
  • Provide meeting passwords only to users who need them.
  • Disable participant screen sharing or file sharing
  • Never share sensitive information in your meeting until you are certain who is in attendance.
  • Keep your Webex software updated.

As the host, you should apply these settings to every meeting as soon as the meeting is started:

  1. Mute Participants on Entry
