– Effective November 23, 2019:
All newly scheduled Zoom meetings, instant Zoom meetings, and Personal Meeting ID (PMI) meetings (where join before host is enabled) will require a passcode by default.
- How will this affect users joining my meetings? This change will not affect users who join by clicking the meeting link or through the desktop calendar integration. Users who join by manually entering the meeting ID will need to enter the passcode manually as well.
- Where can I find the meeting passcode? For scheduled meetings, the meeting passcode will be located within the invitation. For instant meetings, the passcode will be displayed in the Zoom Client or on the Zoom Room’s Controller. The passcode is also included in the meeting join URL.
- Can I disable these settings? You can disable these settings for your meetings by going to the Meeting tab under Settings.
