I am about to stream some live webinars on zoom. I will provide users with a link.

I want to restrict the access to specific users and avoid the invited people to forward or extend the invitation to others. Is there a way to do that?

    Zoom already has a help page on this (support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/…) and it seems it doesn't support that functionality. Jan 2 '19 at 17:59

Based on existing documentation, no, you can't restrict a Zoom meeting to specific users (caveat: the site administrator of a Zoom enterprise license might do so, by controlling the login system, but this is far beyond what the asker is looking for).

Your best bet is:

  • limit sharing by sending the URL just before the event.
  • use the waiting room to review attendees.
  • consider using a different meeting system.

    For a meeting with just a few attendees, the waiting room option is simplest. For a larger meeting, it's a good idea to assign "backstage" duties to a colleague or trusted attendee, make them a co-host as soon as the meeting starts and let them monitor the waiting room, admitting people or not as need be.
