Zoom FAQ Sections


Waiting Rooms

These Zoom FAQs will help you with Zoom’s waiting room feature.

How do waiting rooms work in Zoom?

Waiting rooms are a security feature that prevents people from joining the meeting until the host is ready. It acts as a virtual staging area where you wait for the host to let you in.


They can be beneficial for a number of reasons, especially, for example, if the host is interviewing many potential employees and wants to let them in one by one. Waiting rooms prevent the need for the host to leave and open a new meeting for every new interview, whilst also making sure they aren’t interrupted.


Hosts can customize the title, logo and message that appears in the waiting room. 

How to enable Waiting Room in Zoom?

To enable the waiting room, you must be the host.

  1. Sign in to your Zoom web portal and go on the Settings tab.
  2. Click on the In Meeting (Advanced) option.
  3. Scroll to the Waiting Room option and toggle the button next to it.

To disable a waiting room on Zoom, you must:

  1. Log in to the Zoom web portal and go on the Settings tab.
  2. Toggle the button next to the Waiting Room option to off – the passcode option must be enabled for this to work.
