Zoom: Are You Sure That You Are In A Secure Private Meeting?

  • Require a password when scheduling new meetings
  • Require a password for instant meetings
  • Require a password for Personal Meeting ID (PMI)
  • Default Passwords ⁠ — Zoom now, by default, automatically generates a six-digit numeric password for each meeting you create that participants need to enter when joining by manually entering the meeting ID.
  • Account and Group Level Password Enforcement — Under new controls, three new password settings are now enforceable at the account, group, and user levels by the account admin.
  • Meeting ID Validation — Zoom will no longer automatically indicate if a meeting ID is valid or invalid, making it harder for automated scripts to determine active meetings. For each connection, the page will load and attempt to join the meeting. Thus, a bad actor will not be able to quickly narrow the pool of meetings to attempt to join.
  • Device blocker — To prevent brute force attacks, repeated attempts to scan for meeting IDs will cause a device to be blocked for some time.
