Digital sharing resources for online services, meetings, and gatherings 

For users organizing public group meetings such as church services on video conferencing with Zoom, BBB strongly encourages hosts to review their settings and confirm that only they can share their screen. This will prevent any outside disruption from the main video feed on a public session.  Use a unique ID for large or public Zoom calls.  When you create a Zoom account, the app assigns users a Personal Meeting ID (PMI). When hosting a large Zoom call where members of the public are attending, it’s better to use a one-time code rather than a user’s PMI. If not, hijackers can use the PMI to try and jump in on your Zoom calls at any time.
