Requiring meetings to have one security option in Zoom App

For the security of all meetings, you can choose from a number of additional security options, such as a passcode, a waiting area, and a setting that only authenticated users are allowed into the meeting.

It is not possible to participate in meetings unless you have a passcode, wait in the waiting room, or are authenticated. In addition to offering protection from uninvited guests joining your meetings, this option is an excellent way to add additional security and privacy to your meetings.

Zoom takes care of securing all meetings automatically with Waiting Room if security is not enabled.

This requirement must be met in order for all meetings to be secured with one security type

  • Ownership and administrative privileges of an account

The following guide will teach you how to enable the Require all meetings to be secured with one security option

Account

For all users in the account to have secure meetings with one security option at all times, we require the following:

  1. In Zoom’s web portal, you need to become an administrator of your account. Only administrators have the right to change the settings of the account.
  2. You can change the settings of the account using the Account Management link in the navigation menu.
  3. To do this, click the Meetings option.
  4. You can enable or disable this feature under Security by clicking a toggle next to Require that all meetings be secured with one security option.
  5. Verify the change by clicking Enable or Disable in the dialog box which appears if a verification dialog appears.
  6. The lock icon is an option, but if you wish to make this setting mandatory for all users in your account, you need to click it and then click Lock to confirm it.

Group

Note:

Zoom can now ask you to use the New Admin Experience if you signed up for a new account after August 21, 2021, the Group Management page was renamed to Groups if your Zoom account is enabled with the New Admin Experience.

Requiring that all meetings for a specific group of users involve one security option will enable the following:

  1. As an administrator with the privilege to edit groups, you need to log into the Zoom web portal.
  2. Click on User Management and then click on Group Management to access the settings page.
  3. Click on the name of the relevant group in the list, then select the Settings button.
  4. Choose Meeting from the list of options.
  5. Click the toggle to enable or disable the Require that all meetings are secure with one security option box under Security.
  6. To verify the change, click Enable or Disable from the confirmation dialog box if it appears.
    Note:
  7.  There may be instances where the option is grayed out since it has been locked at the account level and therefore needs to be changed at that level.
  8. You have the option of making this setting mandatory for all members of the group by clicking on the Lock icon, and then click Lock to confirm whether the setting is mandatory or not.

User

As a result of this requirement, you should insist on the use of one security option for all meetings for your own use:

  1. Join the Zoom web portal by logging into your account.
  2. Then click on the Settings link that appears in the navigation menu.
  3. Select the Meetings tab on the left side of the page.
  4. Click the toggle to enable or disable the Require that all meetings be secured with a single security option under Security.
  5. To verify the change, click Enable or Disable if you see a verification dialog appear.
    Note:
  6. In the case of greyed out options, it is because they have been locked at either the account or group level. If you wish to unblock these options, please contact Zoom support.
