Starting July 19, All Zoom Meetings Must Have a Passcode or a Waiting Room Enabled


According to an update communication from Zoom, all meetings will have to have a Passcode or have the Waiting Room enabled beginning July 19. To address the issue with existing meetings, Zoom has stated, “For meetings that do not have either a Passcode or Waiting Room enabled by July 19, Zoom will enable a Waiting Room.” Also included in the communication was a change in terminology, “For meeting join information, we are renaming 'Passwords' to 'Passcodes' to better align with its role of allowing people in a meeting.” Zoom has created a comprehensive FAQ document which is available on their support page.
