Really short zoom link


I've just sent a zoom invitation to an important client for a meeting today.


BUT, unlike other zoom links that have always been generated (which are about 74 characters long) this one is only 37 characters in length). On the shorter URL, everything from (and including the ?pwd= are not showing up.


I did click the link to test it and the zoom window was activated so it looks okay, but his is a VERY important meeting and I want to make sure my client can join.


Is this something I should be worried about?

Thanks to all in advance for your advice.

Hi, @ColeK –


The Passcode is encoded in the pwd parameter you mention. If the meeting does not have a Passcode – and instead relies on a Waiting Room for security – then the URL will not have the pwd encoding of the Passcode on it.
