Zoom Security Permissions
Zoom requires permissions in order to run, access camera or microphone – Go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy > General. If Zoom appears where it says “Allow apps downloaded from…” click the Allow button. You can also check for the required permissions under Security & Privacy > Privacy. In this section, make sure Zoom appears and is checked active under Camera, Microphone, Accessibility, Files and Folders, Screen Recording, and Full Disk Access. If Zoom is not present under these options, click the + symbol, navigate to the applications folder, and select Zoom.
