Full Description:
Over the weekend of April 11-12, 2020, Zoom changed settings throughout its systems to enforce the use of a Zoom-generated password for all Zoom Cloud Recordings by default. This has resulted in members of the Cornell community not being able to view some Zoom recordings until the owner of the recording turns off the protection. Cornell staff have reverted this change, so new recordings are not having the Zoom password added. To remove the password requirement from an affected recording, log into https://cornell.zoom.us/recording , select Share next to the recording, and switch Password Protect to Off.
