In Zoom, a 403 error occurs when you try to enter your personal account through the official website or client. It is worth noting that this problem occurs not only in Zoom, but in other applications and sites.

The problem can arise for various reasons, one of which is an unstable internet connection. In this case, restarting the router or reconnecting to the mobile network will help. If the problem affects other sites, you should report this to the provider.

Antivirus can block the application. You should disable it and try to load the site. If the error lies in it, then instead of permanent deactivation, you can simply replace it with another antivirus.
