Information Technology Services (ITS) previously published a news article reporting that Zoom meetings at UNCG would immediately require a passcode or Waiting Room be enabled. The information reported reflected changes previously announced by Zoom that did not get implemented as planned.   

Zoom’s passcode and/or Waiting Room requirement for meetings at UNCG will not be implemented until later this year.

Zoom now requires all meetings to have a passcode or a Waiting Room enabled. 

This security measure ensures control over meeting-security options while keeping the join experience as seamless as possible. Additionally, Zoom is renaming “password” to passcode to better align with its role of allowing people in a meeting.
