Changes to Zoom Meeting Security

In response to recent issues with Zoom meetings worldwide being attended by uninvited attendees (“Zoombombing”), beginning April 5th, Zoom will require passwords for all meetings and the Waiting Rooms feature will be active by default as additional security enhancements to protect meeting privacy.

Meeting Passwords Enabled “On”


Going forward, your previously scheduled meetings (including those scheduled via your Personal Meeting ID) will have passwords enabled.

If your attendees are joining via a meeting link, there will be no change to their joining experience.
For attendees who join meetings by manually entering a Meeting ID, they will need to enter a password to access the meeting. 
Note: Previously scheduled meetings which required a password, do not need to be rescheduled.
