Prevent participants from sharing their screen

Meeting organizers can stop participants from sharing their screen. If you turn presentations off in recurring meetings or meetings that use the same meeting code, the setting will be saved for the next scheduled meeting. If you turn presentations off in a one-time, nicknamed, or instant meeting, the presentation setting will turn on after the meeting ends. 

To turn screen share on or off:

  1. Join a Meet video call.
  2. On the bottom, click Host controls .
  3. Turn Share their screen on or off.

Tip: If you can't turn the setting on or off, you might need to turn off a Chrome extension for Meet. Learn how to install and manage extensions.
