This time around Zoom “We plan to update your account’s meeting and webinar password settings. “
What’s the story? Some people may say that.
This is the text that appears at the top of the screen immediately after signing in to Zoom.
If you write it again,
Important Updates: Zoom will update your account’s meeting and webinar password settings on September 22, 2019 (GMT). Click here for more information or to opt out of this change.
It’s like this.
I narrowed the width to make it easier to take screenshots after signing in, so please forgive me for the slightly different display.
This article is for those who say that this is important but don’t understand.
In the first place, it seems that some people are not sure about “opting out of this change” .
The simple explanation of opt-out is that you can avoid this forced change.
Let’s take a look.
Will this change change how Zoom is used?
To briefly explain this change, starting September 22, 2019, we will make it the default setting to ask for a password when attending a Zoom meeting .
It’s a measure aimed at improving security, but it’s a little annoying for those who don’t usually hold seminars with passwords.
The meetings to be set this time are as follows.
- Password required when scheduling a new meeting
- Password required for immediate meeting
- Password required for Personal Meeting ID (PMI)
It’s hard to understand if you write it like this, but the point is that you will need a password for every meeting.
However, please note that this is only for those who enter the meeting ID in Zoom and participate .
Those who participate in Zoom from the URL written in e-mail etc. do not need a password as before.
How can I opt out of changing Zoom settings?
If you want to leave it as it is, it will be applied without permission if the deadline is reached as it is, so it is OK.
However, some people like me may say that they don’t need this setting because it’s complicated.
If you are such a person, please follow the steps below.
To opt out of this change, click here Click here.
Then, a screen like this will appear.
Just click “Reject” on this screen .
When the setting is completed, the following display will appear on the screen for a moment.
If you do not press this refusal by the due date, you can disable it from the settings, so you do not have to rush.
You still have the important update message, right?
If you have set it once but still want to change it, please click “here” again .
Since I refused once, the sentence will be slightly different.
If you feel like asking for a password here, click the “Overwrite” button and change the settings.
If you do so, the following display will appear on the screen for a moment, and the setting is complete.
This time , I wrote about “ I plan to update the password settings of the meeting and webinar of your account” that is displayed immediately after signing in to Zoom .
Even if you make this change, the display will continue until the deadline, so could you change it?
You don’t have to worry.
This article is useful within a few days of posting the article, but I hope you find it helpful if you get impatient after the deadline.
We will add a method to disable the password setting after the due date on this page, so thank you.
