Zoom is a video calling program for Windows and macOS that allows you to create private rooms. In this case, access is allowed only with a password. The resource is useful to ensure that only guests enter the meeting online, preventing the participation of people who have not been invited. Experts always recommend using a password to protect yourself from species that intercept invitations with scripts that generate the random numbers that make up the links. Free users of the service can create sessions protected with access code, but only if the video conference is scheduled. See below how to create a meeting that requires a password to enter Zoom.
