Bypassing passcode when joining a Zoom meeting

There is no need for users to manually enter the meeting passcode when a Zoom Room joins a scheduled meeting from its meeting list. Bypass the passcode when joining meetings from the meeting list in Zoom Rooms simplifies the process of giving the room quicker access to its upcoming meeting. Also, when the meeting invitation is sent to the room’s calendar, the meeting passcode must be included in the invitation.

If, however, the administrators and account owners of the account wish to include an additional measure of security and require users to manually enter the password for meetings, they can disable this feature.

  • Ownership or administrative privileges of an account
