How do I make sure I'm using my UT Zoom Account

  1. Log into your https://utexas.zoom.us/profile and make sure you log in with your UTEID and password.

  2. Click the avatar in the top right corner of your profile 

  3. When you click on the avatar it should show a pop-up like the below that identifies you're using an "licensed" account


  4. Once you confirm you're in your UT Zoom profile, click the Edit in the top section of your profile


  5. Add " - UT" to the end of your last name and then save.

Now run a test - Now the next time you log into a meeting, turn on your camera and it should show your name in the bottom left corner of your camera window.  It should read FirstName LastName - UT  (e.g. Clint Tuttle - UT).  If you don't see the " - UT" then you've probably logged in with your non-UT account.
