[U]Tech to require passwords for Zoom meetings and webinars beginning July 28

Starting July 28, University Technology ([U]Tech) will require passwords for all Zoom meetings and webinars. This includes those created before May 30, as well as those using your Personal Meeting ID (PMI). 

Zoom announced that a password requirement will be applied this fall in an effort to be less disruptive to the CWRU community; [U]Tech is implementing the change during the summer. This change provides the safest online learning environment for faculty and students and will limit ‘Zoombombing’ attempts.

For meetings and webinars scheduled before May 30 that still do not have a password, or meetings using your PMI, you will need to send updated invitations to your users. For more information and instructions, visit CWRU’s Zoom Security Guide.
