Security at Gather

Create a secure virtual space where your team can confidently hold private conversations, interact with guests, and create a great work environment.

Hold private conversations

Gather makes it easy to create areas for private conversations, with additional tools to always ensure you’re talking with the right people.

Lock meeting areas

Restrict access to Private Areas in your space and require permission to enter. This prevents people from walking in on important conversations.

Control access with password doors

Require a password before someone enters a certain area in your space. This can help restrict guest access or limit the digital foot traffic.

Chat history disappears

When all users leave a private area, the chat history will be erased so the next group won’t see your notes.

Waiting rooms for guests

External guests won’t be able to join a meeting in Gather until a Member of your space is in the area first.

Control who's in your space

Easily keep track of Members, Guests, and the permissions of each person in your office. You can also Mute, Block, or Ban someone if needed.

Password protect your domain

Require users to enter a password before accessing your space.


Bring secure authentication to your Gather space with single sign-on.

Guest management tools

Non-members of your space will be labeled as a “Guest” and you can mute, remove, or block them if needed.


Control who has access to certain features, including the option to place objects. Learn more about user permissions here.
