Effective November 23, 2019 all Zoom meetings and webinars will require participants to enter a meeting password along with the meeting room number when joining the call. For most meeting attendees, the join flow will remain the same when they join by clicking a link in a meeting invite or join through the desktop calendar integration. However, users who join by manually entering in the meeting ID will need to enter the meeting password that was included in the invite.


Does this change require any action on my part as Zoom Host?  No, as a Zoom meeting host you do not need to change anything with your personal Zoom meeting settings. The change will go into effect on Nov. 23, 2019 to all IC Zoom accounts.  

How will this affect users joining my meetings?  This change will not affect users who join by clicking the meeting link or through the desktop calendar integration. Users who join by manually entering in the meeting ID will need to enter the meeting password manually as well. 

What if I have meetings already scheduled after Nov. 23?  Meeting participants will not be able to join without both the meeting ID and the meeting password. We suggest after Nov. 23 you go into Zoom and regenerate the link or send new emails to your participants with the meeting password. 

As a Zoom Host can I disable these settings?  No, the setting applies to all Ithaca College Zoom accounts and cannot be changed. Zoom has made this change to protect the privacy of their customers’ meetings.

Where can I find the meeting password?  For scheduled meetings, the meeting password will be in the invitation. For instant meetings, the password will be displayed in the Zoom Client. The meeting password is also included in the meeting join URL. 

How will this affect users dialing in by phone?  Users joining by phone will need to enter the Zoom meeting ID and a meeting password using the keypad. 

Who do I contact if I have questions or need help?  Please reach out to the IT Service Desk for assistance. You can reach them by phone 607-274-1000 or email
