Zoom security changes will take effect beginning Sept. 27. As the host or co-host of a meeting, your new and currently scheduled meetings will require attendees to use a passcode to enter or they will be automatically placed in a waiting room.

If you have already created a meeting that requires a passcode:

  • Attendees will seamlessly enter your Zoom meeting if using your meeting link to enter.
  • If attendees access your meeting by manually typing your meeting ID, they will need to also enter the passcode to enter the meeting (no waiting room unless that was also selected during meeting creation).
  • A video that describes how the passcode will work can be viewed at https://youtu.be/t6W3XZ2KAqo.

If you did not set up a class meeting that required a passcode and would prefer not to use the waiting room entry for all your attendees, you could choose to reestablish your new class meeting link now, choose to require the passcode, and provide the new link to your students that will contain the passcode.

If you don’t set up your new class meeting link now and you didn’t require the passcode in your original meeting, your students will be placed in a waiting room after Sept. 27.

  • You can admit each attendee one at a time or admit all.
  • Steps for this process can be viewed at https://youtu.be/ySas2Rgi6yA.

If you have already created a meeting that places attendees in a waiting room:

  • Attendees will be placed in the waiting room.
