New Zoom Requirements: Update

September 22, 2020

On September 10th, we announced Zoom’s intention to require all meetings to have a Passcode or Waiting Room enabled beginning September 27th.  Due to customer feedback, Zoom has informed us that they will not be proceeding with this requirement and the passcode feature will remain “OFF” by default. 

Setting a passcode is a valuable security feature which we strongly advise, but ultimately it will be left up to your discretion.  Information about Zoom can be found in the 

Academic Technology section of If you have any additional questions, please contact UTAC at (973)-443-8822 or email
