5 ways to fix Zoom error code 1001?

Here are five fixes you can try out. 

Log out of Zoom

Logging out of your existing account and reconnecting the right one is the best way to fix the error. Here’s what you need to do.

Step 1: Head over to the Zoom website and log out of your existing account.

Step 2: Log in to Zoom with the account provided by your organisation or school. This should send a confirmation email to your organisation or school’s email account.

Step 3: Confirm the login and the account switch from the email you received. 

Once done, restart Zoom and the error should be gone. 

Disable Antivirus

Sometimes overly aggressive third-party antivirus systems tend to block certain applications from accessing the internet or the hardware they require. Try disabling your antivirus to see if Zoom functions as normal, and if it does, it’d be better to add an exception for the program. 

Updating the Zoom app

If you’re trying to schedule the meeting on the Zoom app on your Android or iOS phone, the best way is to head to your respective app store and check for any updates. If you do see one, install it immediately and try scheduling the meeting again.
