Removing someone from a Zoom meeting doesn’t feel very nice, but sometimes, it’s necessary. With the following tips, you’ll be able to eliminate any Zoom user who is just not following the rules.
The process is quick and easy and will only take an instant to do. Since that person already has the meeting password, there’s also a way to block them from rejoining the meeting.
How to Remove Someone from a Zoom Meeting
The only way you can eliminate someone from a meeting is if you’re the host or co-host. If you are, go to:
- Choose the person you want to remove
- You’ll be asked if you want to remove this person and that once you remove this person, they won’t be able to rejoin the meeting.
- Tap on Yes
Once you tap the Yes option, the user that was kicked out will see a message letting them that they can’t rejoin the meeting because the host removed them.
How to Allow Banned Zoom User to Rejoin Meetings
If you think that you’ve forgiven the misbehaved Zoom users, there’s a way to let them back in. To allow the user access to the meetings again, you’ll need to go to Zoom’s official site. Once you’re there, sign in to your account. Click on the drop-down menu and then on the Settings drop-down menu.
Scroll all the way down and look for the option that says Allow Removed participants to rejoin and toggle on the option. This option will apply to all removed participants. So, if you only want to allow one or a few in, that means that you’ll have to remove the other if they ever do come back to one of your meetings.
Hopefully, you won’t have to remove too many Zoom users from your meetings. If you do, you know that it can be done quickly. Do you already know who you’ll be removing in future meetings?

Does this apply to future recurring meetings? In other words, if a participant is removed from a meeting on Monday, can they join a recurring meeting with the same ID on Wednesday? Can they join a separately created meeting or does the removal only apply to meetings with the same ID?
