Zoom Password Requirements

May 12, 2020

Beginning on Monday, May 18, all Zoom meetings or webinars will be required to use a password. This change will also affect any previously scheduled or recurring meeting as well as for all personal meeting rooms.

Currently users can enable passwords on a meeting-by-meeting basis. With this update, three new settings will be added at the account level:

  • Require a password when scheduling new meetings
  • Require a password for instant meetings
  • Require a password for Personal Meeting ID (PMI)

For most meeting attendees, the join flow will remain the same, whether they join by clicking a link in a meeting invite or join through the desktop calendar integration. Participants who join by manually entering in the meeting ID will need to enter the password when joining a meeting. For scheduled meetings, the meeting password will be in the invitation. For instant meetings, the password will be displayed in the Zoom Client.
