Protect your conference calls with additional security settings
Available on all paid plans
One-Time Access Code
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.
Security Code for all meetings
Via the settings section in a your account, select 'Security Code', enter your own preferred code that participants will be prompted to enter when calling using a phone and also via a pop-up message when they join via web. This will add another layer of security for situations where discretion and privacy are required.
While a conference is in progress, you have the option to lock the 'room'. This will prevent additional participants from connecting via phone or web.
Via Web: While logged into your account, join the Online Meeting Room and click on the settings cog in the Menu and then click or tap on the 'Lock' button as shown below.
Via Phone: Ensure you have called in with the moderator PIN and press *5 from your phone's dial pad to prevent new participants from joining. To unlock the conference, just press *5 once more.
