In June we reached out about a new security standard for our paid accounts. We are continuously working to balance security with ensuring a fluid meeting experience. Based on the feedback that we received about both the nature and timing of these changes, we will no longer be enforcing a mandatory security requirement for your account on September 27, 2020, or at any point thereafter.
If you utilize Zoom Schedulers (i.e. Chrome, Firefox, or Outlook plug-ins), we will be enhancing these tools to help your transition in utilzing Passcodes and / or Waiting Rooms.
Starting September 27th, Zoom will require that all meetings have a Passcode or a Waiting Room enabled.
Zoom has designed these security measures to give you control over your meeting security options while keeping the join experience as frictionless as possible.
For more details, please see Zoom's FAQ on the passcode/waiting room requirement.
Note: Zoom originally announced that this new requirement would kick on July 19th, then September 27th, then decided not to enforce this requirement after receiving feedback from the community - see the 9/22 update for more information.
The setting Require password to access shared cloud recordings is enabled by default. A random password will automatically be generated. This setting applies to new recordings only. You can turn off the password requirement for individual recordings when you share them from guilford.zoom.us. You can also turn off this feature in your individual Settings.
