Mandatory Passcodes for Zoom Meetings – Enforced as of August 31, 2020 09:00 PT

Beginning August 31st, 2020, UBC will require all new Zoom meetings to have a passcode enabled for increased security. Any new meetings created as of August 31st will have a passcode automatically enabled and generated. Any meetings that were created before August 31st will not be affected by this change.
Beginning September 27th, 2020, Zoom will enforce a system-wide change by automatically enabling a waiting room for any meetings that do not have a passcode. We therefore recommend that users edit existing meetings to enable a passcode to avoid having the waiting room automatically enabled on this date.
