Updates made to authenticated user settings in Zoom

On Saturday, Aug. 22, Zoom made a change to the meeting setting, “Only authenticated users can join.” Previously, this selection required all participants to sign into CWRU Single Sign-On (SSO) to join the meeting. This change only required users to sign in with any valid Zoom account—a CWRU account was not required. At 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 25, University Technology ([U]Tech) restored the default to “Signing into CWRU SSO Required.”

If a meeting was created between Aug. 22 and Aug. 25 with “Only authenticated users can join” selected and the meeting should only be available to CWRU participants, that meeting should be edited from “Sign in to Zoom” to “Signing into CWRU SSO Required.”
