From 27 September, Zoom will require that all meetings have a Passcode or a Waiting Room enabled. The update is designed to improve the security of your meetings.
What if I don’t have a Waiting Room or Passcode enabled by 27 September? If neither is enabled, Zoom will automatically enable a Waiting Room for your meetings. If you already have a Passcode or Waiting Room enabled, nothing will change.
How do I enable Waiting Rooms or Passcodes?
You can log into your Zoom portal and go into settings to enable a Passcode or Waiting Room.
Remember: If you decide to add Passcodes to an existing meeting, calendar invites will need to be resent to include the Passcode.
