Getting Started with Zoom
Signing Up and Activating Your Zoom Account
To sign up for your own free account, visit zoom.us/signup and enter your email address. You will receive an email from Zoom (email@example.com). In this email, click Activate Account. Once you have this account, when you “join a meeting” the system may ask to download the Zoom application to your computer. This is safe and necessary for secure operations in Zoom.
Signing In to Your Zoom Account on the Web
You can login to your Zoom account on the web at any time at zoom.us/signin. Once you’re logged in, use the panel on the left side to navigate the Zoom web portal. You can update your profile, schedule a meeting, edit your settings, and more.
