FAQ

Quonference is a web-conferencing platform allows you to conduct meetings with people that are not physically in the same location as you are.  You can use it to present, teach, discuss, brainstorm and work remotely with your team. The strong passwordless authentication makes it especially suited for confidential meetings.

A reasonably moden computer (less than 10 years old), tablet device or phablet with speakers and microphone. In addition  a modern browser such as Chrome or Firefox is required.

If you want to share your video you will need a web cam.

If you don’t have a microphone or speakers you can also call into the meeting room via a phone number.

Screen sharing is the ability to show what is on your screen to your remote participants. You can share your entire screen, a browser tab or a specific application window.

To share your screen you need to be either the room host or the room host can allow you to share your screen. In either case a simple click of the screen icon on the bottom left of the screen will initiate the process.

No additional software other than a modern WebRTC compatible browser is required to use any of the features in Quonference. This includes the majority of modern web browsers.

There are 4 levels of security on Quonference meeting rooms:

  • Fully open – any one with the room link can access the room
  • User login required – users must have a Quonference user  account and be in the same company as the you the room owner
  • Invitation only – you select who can access the room. This can be anyone in your contact list.  To get access to the meeting room your participants enter their email address on the login screen and a one time pin is created and sent to their email account if they are on the invitation list. They will have a limited amount of time to use the pin and once used it expires.
  • FIDO2 / Biometric – your participants are required to associate a biometric marker or a FIDO2 roaming hardware authentication device such as a Yubico key using their computers in-built biometric recognition reader or a FIDO2 compatible security key with their account. Your participants then access the room by authenticating with the biometric reader or the roaming authentication device.

We will limit room sizes to around 25 people during our BETA phase. If you’d like more capacity please contact us.

Absolutely. Please contact us to discuss your requirement and we will be happy to provide quote and a scope of work.

Yes, recording can be activated by the room host and all participants are made aware the room is being recorded. Recordings are posted to the room hosts user account and can be made publicly available via a URL if the room host wishes to share the recording after the meeting.

Quonference can protect against unauthorized access to your meetings by enabling the use of FIDO2 compatible biometric readers and roaming hardware security devices as the authentication step when accessing a room.

Simply put this means that only users who confirm who they are by use of their computers fingerprint reader or other such device can gain access to a room setup this way.

Rooms set up this way are protected against unauthorized access in the most secure manner as access to the room is based on who the participant is or dependant on something they are personally in possession of and not something they know i.e. a password. Passwords or pin codes are eliminated as these are potential security risks.

Imagine that you had a fingerprint reader on the outside of a physical door leading to a room and only authorized persons could access the room by scanning their fingerprints. Quonference gives you exactly that same level of protection only this time it is for your virtual room.

In addition to advanced access control all your meetings are encrypted using industry standard encryption.

Quonference has an integrated event planner that integrates with Google and Microsoft hosted calendars with which you can invite participants to a room either on an ad hoc basis or at a given time and date.
