One-Time Access Code
For Scheduled Conferences
If you have an important call and you want to ensure it is private, just select the 'Security Settings' option when scheduling your call. This option can be found at the bottom of the first 'Schedule a conference' page and will give you the option to randomly generate a one-time access code to be used just for that particular scheduled call.
You will also have the option to add an additional layer of security by choosing your own 'Security Code' just for this meeting. Callers will be prompted to enter this after the access code has been accepted. For scheduled calls, this feature can only be used in combination with the one-time access code.
The one-time access code will be sent to all invitees, along with the regular conference dial-in number/s and meeting URL. Participants will only need to enter this code instead of your regular code after calling the usual dial-in number.
**The one-time code will be active 15 minutes before the scheduled start time.
Default for all Meetings
Via the settings section in your account, select 'Security', and choose 'Use one-time access code' and click Save. This will set ALL of your scheduled meetings to have a unique access code as your default preference.
