Disabling Chat For All Zoom Meetings


How do I disable the chat feature for all future Zoom meetings of which I am the host?


  • Zoom


  1. Sign into the Zoom web portal.
  2. In the navigation menu on the left, click Settings.
  3. Click In-Meeting (Basic).
  4. Scroll to find Chat.
  5. If the setting is enabled, click the toggle to disable it. A gray toggle indicates the setting is disabled. 
    Note: Auto-saving chats is enabled by default by WKU ITS. This is for your security, so it is not recommended to disable this setting by itself. If you disable and re-enable the Chat function, Auto-saving chats will automatically be re-enabled. 
  6. Sign out of your Zoom Desktop Client and sign in again. 
  7. All future meetings that you host should now have this function disabled by default for participants. 

You can also disable the chat feature for individual meetings.
