Scheduling Caution – Stop Using Personal Meeting ID’s

We all schedule meetings; GoToMeeting or Zoom. A security concern that is often overlooked is the friendly Personal Meeting ID (PMI) that you use.

Your PMI is a constant value and never changes. Once it is known or guessed by someone, they could connect to the meeting whether they have been invited or not.

While requiring a password for PMI meetings will help, I know I’ve been in meetings before where they were not required out of convincing or are always the same. This goes for those conference brides also. Its recommended that you do not use PMI’s at all.

Allow your meeting provider to automatically generate the meeting ID creates a unique ID which is a more secure option
