Zoom Web Conferencing

Before You Begin

To protect a Zoom meeting against unauthorized attendees, you can set a required password so that nobody can join without it. This behavior has been enabled by default for new meetings, but existing meetings will not require a password unless one is manually added to them.


  1. Log in to msu.zoom.us
  2. Click on Meetings on the left side of the page
  3. Click on the Topic for the meeting you want to edit
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the meeting and click Edit this Meeting
  5. Under Meeting Password, click to fill the Require Meeting Password checkbox
  6. Keep the generated password, or enter one of your choosing
  7. Click Save at the bottom
  8. Back on the Meeting page, you can create a new Outlook appointment, or copy the invitation link to send manually. See Zoom's Support Page for more details.
