Password-Protect a Meeting

As an organizer, you can choose to password-protect your meetings. Once password-protected, your attendees will need to enter a secret password of your choosing to join the meeting. Note that only local recording is available for password-protected meetings.

Remember that you must send the password to your participants or they won't be able to enter the meeting. For security reasons, GoToMeeting doesn't send the password for you.

Add a password from the web

1. Schedule a new meeting or edit an existing one.

2. On the Password tab, check the Require a meeting password box and then click Save.

3. The Invite People window will give you the option to type in the password and have it included in the email invitation.

4. When you're ready to start the meeting, you will be prompted to enter the meeting password that you sent to attendees. Enter your password and click OK to launch the session.

Add a password from the desktop app

1. Schedule a new meeting. If you are editing a formerly scheduled meeting, you will not be able to set the password until you launch the meeting.

2. Check the Require meeting password box and type in your desired password.

3. When you invite others to the meeting, be sure to inform them of the secret password that you intend to set. GoToMeeting will not automatically send it to them or remember it for you.

Add a password from the Android app
