Zoom – conference without password

It is most convenient to invite users to a video conference in Zuma using a special link, but this is not always possible. The participant can log in himself if he knows the meeting ID, as well as the connection code (in other words, the password). And with the latter, problems often arise: it is easy to get confused in the case of letters, etc. Therefore, the service developers have provided an option on how to create a conference in Zoom without a password . I would like to disassemble this procedure.


We have prepared two separate instructions, the first for the desktop version of Zuma (Windows, Linux and Mac OS), and the second for the mobile version (Android and iOS). The organization of video conferencing is also available through the website, but in this case, unfortunately, you will not be able to disable password entry.

Instruction # 1: Client Zoom for computers and laptops

Setting procedure:

  1. Visit the “Conferences” tab from the main program window.
  2. Find the “Change” button here , and then click on it.
  3. In the new window, disable the “Password required …” option .
  4. Change other parameters as desired.
  5. Click on “Save” .
  6. Now visit the “Home” tab .
  7. Click on the orange button to start an online meeting.Tell other users the identifier to connect to it. To see it, click on the marked icon in the upper left corner of the screen:

Instruction # 2: Application for Android and iOS

In the mobile version of Zuma, this function is configured slightly differently. We bring to your attention a laconic algorithm:

  1. Launch the app on your phone or tablet.
  2. Tap on the “Conferences” button . It is second on the bottom panel.
  3. And now – on the “Edit” button .
  4. Disable the “Conference Password” option .
  5. Configure other options as desired.
  6. Save the changes you just made.
  7. Start a video conference from the same application tab. To do this, tap on the “Start” item .
  8. Share the meeting ID that will be listed at the top of the screen.
  9. Wait for other participants to connect and allow them to enter, if you have not previously disabled the waiting room.

In the future, start the video conference in the same way as described in the seventh step. That is, you need to go to the appropriate tab and click “Start” . Otherwise, a password will be required to connect again.
