To avoid Zoombombing a password to get access to your meeting: scheduled or instant one will be required by default. This requirement can be changed on your account settings or for a particular meeting. Just select the meeting and edit the
Meeting Password section.
For meetings using your PMI (Personal Meeting ID) a password will be only required if
Enable join before host is checked out.
This means that when sharing a link you could either send:
- URL with encrypted password: https://cern.zoom.us/j/403863874?pwd=cTNsZklBeTRmcmxlWFkzaXNYOVB5Zdsa09
- URL of your meeting e.g. https://cern.zoom.us/j/403863874 and send the password e.g. 41235 via DM (direct message) or email for example.
Usually you shouldn’t worry about this, as by
Copy invitation or
Copy URL will contain the right URL. Inviting/calling attendees directly from the meeting doesn’t require to provide a password.
