What to Do if You Get Banned From Zoom?
Zoom provides a lot of information in regards to what could cause an account ban. Unfortunately, Zoom does not provide any information on what to do if you would like to appeal your account. Additionally, Zoom does not provide any information on how long your ban will last or whether you can contact someone regarding your ban. Even more, Zoom does not provide an easy way to directly contact them. They provide online resources to help users troubleshoot their issues. If you would like to self-troubleshoot, you can attempt to find information regarding an account ban by taking the following steps:
- Visit the Zoom website.
- Scroll to the bottom and select "Contact us"
- You will be directed to a page that states, "How Can We Help". Select "Account and Billing Support".
Unfortunately, upon taking these steps, you will find that there isn't any information related to recovering a temporary or permanent account ban. This can be frustrating if you're trying to quickly recover your account. With that said, another option you can try is to call their headquarters at 1-888-799-9666 and ask to be redirected to the team that handles account bans and suspensions.
When trying to recover an account ban from companies like Zoom that do not offer an adequate form of contact, the best option is to send a demand letter to their physical address to try and appeal your account. If you would like to send a demand letter, you can send it to 55 Almaden Boulevard, Suite 600 San Jose, CA 95113. You may be able to get a rebuttal from someone at headquarters.
