Mass-deploying with preconfigured settings for iOS


System administrators can use a mobile device Management (MDM) to remotely configure the Zoom mobile app on managed iOS devices. This allows admins to require use of certain settings or disable them entirely.

The mobile app can be enrolled in and managed through Zoom Device Management, which allows you to centrally control desktop client and mobile app settings in the Zoom web portal. 

This article covers:

Learn to install Zoom with preconfigured settings for Windows devices, macOS devices, and Android devices. You can also use Zoom’s own Device Management platform to centrally configure desktop client and mobile app settings.

Prerequisites for using MDM to configure Zoom on iOS

Note: While not required, not deploying an associated App Protection Policy will result in users being prompted to sign in to the Intune account upon every launch of the Zoom app. Upon first launch users will need to sign in with their Microsoft credentials, but including the App Protection Policy avoids any further Intune authentication prompts.
