Gmail Password


Sherry Wells
 

Hello List,

 

I attended a Zoom meeting that required a password.  I thought it was the password required by the host but they wanted my gmail password so I got locked out of Zoom.  I never sign in to Outlook.  Is there a way in Outlook or on the gmail web site to find your password.  I thought I knew it but am embarrassed to say I did not.  If I need to reset it, can I do that from Outlook or do I need to go to the gmail web site.

 

Thanks,


Sarah k Alawami
 

You might do it from the gmail website. And yes if you signed in with yoru gmail account, you will need its password to sign in as that's how it knows who you are.

Take care

I'm not going to speak to anything Gmail in relation to Zoom, even though I use Gmail and know it extremely well, because the sequence of events here is important..  If you don't know your Gmail password you should reset it anyway, and make sure to keep a record of it.  Also, as part of the reset process, give Google either an alternate email or a cell phone number that can be used to verify you should you somehow get locked out of your account

That being said, the vast majority of Zoom meetings do not require login of any kind.  The organizers should send out a direct link or the meeting number, which can be used in the Zoom App to go straight in to a given meeting.

Yes, this is the first Zoom meeting I have attended that required a sign in & password.  Since he sent us a password, I assumed that is what Zoom wanted instead of my gmail password.  Yes, I do want to reset it but would like to just do it from Outlook somewhere.

The only place you can reset a Google Account password is via Google's web interface.  There is no other option.  And I say Google Account since a single Google Account is used to access all services, including Gmail.

Sherry,

 

I’ve just encountered a similar problem as a Zoom novice. The easy solution is to ask the host not to require a password. I’m told that the person who starts a Zoom meeting has a default option of requiring a password. The default can be undone. Making this request led to a solution of my Zoom problem.

 

However, my Google/Gmail problem has so far gone unsolved. I do know what my password used to be, but Google is no longer accepting it. so I had to go through the reset password process. This led me to a CATCHA nightmare and a requirement that I give my phone number in order to accept a texted temporary password. As I say, problem yet to be solved.

Well if you signed in with gmail then you will be signing in with gmail.
Now, if this is a shared system then you can't do this but if its not,
you can probably have zoom remember your signin.
If you are logged into your google account from chrome or edge
chromium you can just change your password from the google website.
accounts.google.com
If not, you can reset the thing as normal.
If you do reset your password, it should transfer over, however you
will need to reenter your password in outlook, and anything that uses
it.
If your google drive is connected I think it will translate over it
does transfer on dropbox but unsure otherwise.
I have not needed to reset google for a while, but you will have to
fill out an audio captcha and answer your security questions.

Adrian,

 

I’ve been to lots of Zoom meetings & this was the first to require a sign in.  It’s a class so I thought he might just want all of our emails.  He told us, though, that he did it as he read that it is now getting popular for idiots to “Zoom bomb” meetings & display porn.  I don’t use video but guess people in the meeting are visible so would be displaying this instead of their faces.  I had not heard of this but suppose it shouldn’t be a surprise with all the idiots running around.  Most of the Zoom meetings I have been to are all blind people so if someone was displaying porn, it would be lost on us & the idiot would be disappointed at the lack of a reaction!

Adrian,

 

Agreed!  It is pretty funny to imagine someone crashing a meeting of blind folks & displaying their porn or swastikas and getting no reaction.  On the other hand, I read an article today about Zoom bombing & apparently some are signing into meetings & yelling offensive white supremist type stuff.  At least in that case the person could be muted by the host.  There are just way too many idiots out there!

It appears that CathyAnne Murtha's last session on Windows 10 she's offering (See: Free Lunch Break Windows 10 Training with CathyAnne.) was Zoom bombed in such a way that the disruption could not be easily managed.

She's going to try requiring a password, but note well, that password is for the meeting itself, which she will assign as the Zoom meeting organizer.  It is not anyone's user account password for a Google or Yahoo or other account.

I guess just be careful, and do what I've done fo ryears. Have a waiting room for all to join, they have to be let in by the host, and if they miss it or have to rejoin and the host won't let them in, then, well, tha'ts it.

Take care and be blessed, and happy learning.

Sarah, that works well, but only if the number of attendees is relatively small.

If you have Zoom meetings where you expect hundreds of attendees, which does happen, the waiting room method very quickly becomes hard to manage.

It's all in what's your expected meeting size.

That's true. Normally I forget about that lol! I have had maybe at most 10 or 15 people in my meetings. Not hundreds, thank god.

Well, heer's to a happy teaching experience etc.

Take care. I'm out for perhaps the rest of the day.

Seriously, this is not generally needed.   You definitely can sign in to Zoom itself, but most meetings don't require you to be logged in to Zoom itself, at least if the meeting organizer doesn't require it.

I'm not doubting you've needed to do it, but you need to talk to your meeting organizer(s), if these meetings are going to be ongoing, to see if they know how to set up a meeting where they assign a meeting password, but the Zoom User needs nothing more than that.

The person who set up this class is definitely new to Zoom & not very technical.  I think having the meeting id & a class password is sufficient also.  Of course had I not been stupid enough to record my gmail password incorrectly, I wouldn’t have started this thread.

When I create a Zoom meeting, I can choose everyone can join, or only Zoom subscribers can join. When it is the latter, each participant must sign in to their Zoom account to join.

Sherry,

 

I’ve just encountered a similar problem as a Zoom novice. The easy solution is to ask the host not to require a password. I’m told that the person who starts a Zoom meeting has a default option of requiring a password. The default can be undone. Making this request led to a solution of my Zoom problem.

 

However, my Google/Gmail problem has so far gone unsolved. I do know what my password used to be, but Google is no longer accepting it. so I had to go through the reset password process. This led me to a CATCHA nightmare and a requirement that I give my phone number in order to accept a texted temporary password. As I say, problem yet to be solved.

Yes, this is the first Zoom meeting I have attended that required a sign in & password.  Since he sent us a password, I assumed that is what Zoom wanted instead of my gmail password.  Yes, I do want to reset it but would like to just do it from Outlook somewhere.

I'm not going to speak to anything Gmail in relation to Zoom, even though I use Gmail and know it extremely well, because the sequence of events here is important..  If you don't know your Gmail password you should reset it anyway, and make sure to keep a record of it.  Also, as part of the reset process, give Google either an alternate email or a cell phone number that can be used to verify you should you somehow get locked out of your account

That being said, the vast majority of Zoom meetings do not require login of any kind.  The organizers should send out a direct link or the meeting number, which can be used in the Zoom App to go straight in to a given meeting.

Adrian,

 

I’ve been to lots of Zoom meetings & this was the first to require a sign in.  It’s a class so I thought he might just want all of our emails.  He told us, though, that he did it as he read that it is now getting popular for idiots to “Zoom bomb” meetings & display porn.  I don’t use video but guess people in the meeting are visible so would be displaying this instead of their faces.  I had not heard of this but suppose it shouldn’t be a surprise with all the idiots running around.  Most of the Zoom meetings I have been to are all blind people so if someone was displaying porn, it would be lost on us & the idiot would be disappointed at the lack of a reaction!

Which points up the exact points I was trying to make, save one.  And I'm curious if you can shed some light on this:  can you put a meeting password on but without the requirement that a participant be logged in with their Zoom account?

I can't imagine how a Gmail account would fit in at all unless Zoom gives a login option somewhere for using your Google account, Facebook account, or similar.  So far I haven't run into that, but that doesn't mean it's not there somewhere.
