Embedding Zoom meeting passcode in invite link

This post was most recently updated on July 21st, 2022

The invitation link can be embedded with your meeting passcode if you wish. There is an option to encrypt your meeting passcode and include it in your invite link, which will enable participants to join with just one click and eliminate the need to type in a passcode manually. Your meeting is more secure and convenient with an embedded passcode as it makes joining easier for attendees.

If you do not wish for your attendees to be required to enter the meeting‘s passcode automatically when they click an invite link, you may disable Embed passcode in invite link for one-click join.
