Those with free Zoom accounts must now use a password for all meetings as part of a number of features aimed at free users.
The changes will be implemented on May 9, ahead of a new level of encryption being introduced across the platform from May 30, which will "provide increased protection for meeting data and resistance against tampering".
According to a blogpost by Zoom, basic accounts will be updated on Saturday (09.05.20) with a number of changes.
The post notes: "Passwords will be required for all meetings, including new meetings, previously scheduled meetings, and those using PMI [personal meeting IDs]."
In addition, the company said "waiting Rooms for PMI will be turned on by default, while "screen sharing privileges will be Host Only by default" as part of the new measures.
