Zoom passwords: Dynamic or static

It's important always to use a password for your video meetings, in order to prevent unwanted guests from joining. Our Zoom integration provides two options for this: a dynamic password or a static password. 

Dynamic passwords

If you're using dynamic passwords, ScheduleOnce assigns every Zoom meeting scheduled with a unique password, just for that meeting. Dynamic passwords are highly preferred over static passwords because they are much more secure. Anyone who’s booked with you in the past or merely seen your conferencing information could have the static password. They may try to use it again and unexpectedly joining another session.

Once you switch to dynamic passwords, ScheduleOnce generates a unique password with maximum complexity for every single Zoom meeting, never used before and never repeated again. This is one of the most significant steps you can take to reduce Zoom security risk.

Static passwords

Although dynamic passwords are more secure and highly recommended, some may wish to use a static password instead. A static password uses the same password for all Zoom meetings scheduled. 

The meeting ID will still be unique for each meeting but the password providing an extra step of security will remain the same from meeting to meeting.
