Security Settings for a Zoom Personal Meeting Room

Environment

Zoom (U-M Zoom, Zoom for Health at U-M)

Issue

What security settings should I use on my Zoom Personal Meeting Room? How do I set them?

Resolution

For Personal Meeting Rooms, U-M ITS recommends using a Waiting Room so you can control who can join and when. If you only expect U-M students, faculty, and/or staff in your Personal Meeting Room, you can also use Only authenticated users can join>University of Michigan Users. Use multiple security options for added security.

  1. Navigate to https://zoom.umich.edu/meeting and login if prompted
  2. Click the Personal Meeting Room tab at the top of the page
  3. Click Edit
    • To set a Waiting Room: Check the box next to Waiting room in the Security section
    • To set Only authenticated users can join>University of Michigan Users: Check the box next to Only authenticated users can join in the Meeting Options section, and ensure that University of Michigan Users is selected in the drop-down
    • To set a Passcode: Check the box next to Passcode in the Security section and enter the passcode you would like to use
  4. Click Save
Passcode Note: If you only use a Passcode, anyone with the Passcode can join at any time.
