Password-Protect a Meeting

As an organizer, you can choose to password-protect your meetings. This means that in order to join the session, your attendees will need to enter a secret password of your choosing.

Remember that you must send the password to your participants or they won't be able to enter the meeting. For security reasons, GoToMeeting doesn't send the password for you.
