Webex Meetings Now Password Protected

To strengthen the security of meetings and protect against unauthorized attendance, Cisco now requires Webex Meeting sessions to be password protected.

Webex Meetings is configured to automatically add passwords for any new sessions scheduled after Friday, January 10, 2020. Site administrators will not be able to disable passwords.

Participants can easily join a meeting by clicking on the URL in the meeting invitation through email or the Webex Meetings mobile app, without requiring passwords. Only users who enter the meeting number on the web page to join a meeting are required to enter passwords. The password requirement does not affect attendees dialing into the meeting through a phone or video device.

If you have questions or need assistance with Webex Meetings, please contact the ITS Support Center at 703-993-8870 or support@gmu.edu.
