Mandatory Meeting Security Passcodes Enabled for all Tulane Zoom Accounts 

Meeting passcodes have been enabled on all Tulane Zoom accounts in an effort to improve Zoom meeting security. 

Recurring meetings created prior to December 7th will not require a passcode to enter the meeting.

Learn more about Passcodes on Zoom's website.

IMPORTANT: check if you are using a personal meeting ID (PMI) for your meetings. If so, you need to auto-generate or create a passcode for your PMI. This is a one-time step. See below:

Setting a Passcode for Your Personal Meeting ID (PMI):

  1. From the desktop client, select Meetings at the top.

  2. Click My Personal Meeting ID (the ID is listed at the top).

  3. Select Edit and check the Passcode box. A passcode will be generated or you can personalize it.

  4. Click Save.
