Zoom passcodes: Dynamic or static

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

Dynamic passcodes

If you're using dynamic passcodes, ScheduleOnce assigns every Zoom meeting scheduled with a unique passcode, just for that meeting. Dynamic passcodes are highly preferred over static passcodes 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 passcode. They may try to use it again and unexpectedly joining another session.

Once you switch to dynamic passcodes, ScheduleOnce generates a unique passcode 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 passcodes

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

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