With the entire world under lockdown, obviously the schools and offices have to figure out working from home.
Video conferencing and online classes have flourished during this time with almost every sector operating through the internet.
Schools and colleges are also fully using the internet by holding classes on video conference apps like Skype, Google Hangouts, Zoom and more.
But just like a normal classroom, students, it seems are not that interested in attending these online classes too and keep looking for various hacks to get out of them.
One such hack recently went viral on the video-sharing social app called TikTok.
What Is This TikTok Hack?
See, the thing with physical classes was how to get out of the class without the teacher seeing you. And more often than not, you’d get caught while trying to do so.
So students came up with other ways like wanting to fill up their water bottle, or that they were needed for another project urgently.
A TikTok user named Nhan Huynh or charlie.huynh2 recently gave such a hack on how to get away from attending their Zoom class without getting into trouble.

So all you do is :
- Turn off the video part of the Zoom class.
- Put yourself on mute.
- Change your name to ‘reconnecting’.
This essentially makes it seem like the person is having internet issues and they can go about their merry day without the teacher knowing the truth.
There was even one more hack which was about putting up a virtual background that has a picture of you to make it look as if you’re attending the class.

This could backfire though if you leave up the image for too long and the teacher gets suspicious as to why you’re not moving for long periods of time.
