Enable Meeting Password in your Zoom Meeting

Zoom meetings can require passwords for an added layer of security. If you set a meeting password, you’ll also need to share this password, along with the meeting link (Join URL). Encourage your participants not to share the meeting password as it will allow anyone with the password to join.

Meeting Password is also used when you need to hold a meeting with participants from outside of UD. If this is the case, turn off the authentication setting (you can follow step 2 of the authentication instructions, but turn off the setting instead).
