Changing account settings in Zoom App

The admin settings for an account allow all users to have their settings changed. Users can also choose whether they wish to lock setting changes on or off to avoid them being changed by other users.

It is important to note that the account settings are similar to those available for groups of users and for individuals. They can be modified by the individual user if they are not locked for the account or group. Thus, you can set up tiered settings to suit your needs.

Note : 

In this article, I will describe account-specific settings, which can only be configured at the account level. Users can also access account settings on a user-by-user basis. Account owners and administrators have access to account-level settings.


  • Ownership or administrative privileges for an account
  • With a credit card, business account, education account, or API partner account, you can get this service free of charge

Accessing and changing account settings

  1. To access the Zoom web portal, you will need to sign in.
  2. Click Account Management in the navigation bar, then select Account Settings.
    There are three tabs for setting up your account:
  3. Audio Conferencing, Recording, and Meetings.
  4. Choose a setting to modify.
  5. To lock the setting, click the lock icon. Having a setting locked in your account will prevent individual users from changing it. The setting will also be locked in for all groups that use your account.

There are a number of settings you can change. However, some of those settings depend on certain pre-requisites. Please review the article about the setting to determine if your account meets the prerequisites if you do not see a setting listed for your group.

Note :

In this article, we are going to talk about settings that are only available for accounts. Owners and administrators of accounts can also access user-level settings in addition to these general settings.

Meeting tab


  • The password must be entered:
  • Make the passcode complex.
  • Default encryption type:
  • Choose one of two encryption methods:
  • It is possible to encrypt data better (e.g. with encryption keys which are stored in the cloud) or end-to-end (e.g. with encryption keys which are stored on-site).

Schedule Meeting

  • Watermark your work
  • By adding an audio watermark
  • Set the meeting topic to “Zoom Meeting”
  • Set the webinar title to “Zoom Webinar”

In Meeting (Basic)

Note :

In Meeting (Advanced)

  • Q&A during the webinar
  • A virtual background to the webinar
  • Using video filters
  • To create an immersive experience
  • Using the focus mode
  • Peer to peer connection while only 2 people in a meeting:
  • To allow for direct data distribution between two attendees during one-on-one meetings, rather than having to go through a cloud platform. Depending on how your network prioritizes traffic during one-on-one meetings, configuring this setting improves the quality of one-on-one meetings. Rather than using a peer-to-peer connection, a third party will use Zoom’s cloud infrastructure when joining a one-on-one meeting.
  • The service will mark the meeting with DSCP.
  • Add the ability to attend a Zoom meeting via the Skype for Business (Lync) client
  • When joining or starting a meeting
