How To Access A Zoom Recording With A Password

Should you wish to share a Zoom meeting or webinar recording with select individuals without making it available to all, securing the recording with a password is an option. Follow these instructions to set up a password-protected Zoom recording:

Step 1: Open the Zoom App

First, open the Zoom app on your computer or mobile device.

Step 2: Go to the Recordings Tab

Once you are logged in, click on the “Recordings” tab at the top of the screen. This will take you to a list of all the recordings you have made on Zoom.

Step 3: Select the Recording You Want to Share

Find the recording that you want to share and click on it. This will take you to the recording’s details page.

Step 4: Click on the “Share” Button

On the recording’s details page, you will see a button labeled “Share.” Click on this button and select “Copy Link” to copy the link to the recording.

Step 5: Share the Link with Others

Now that you have the link to the recording, you can share it with others. However, if you want to password protect the recording, you will need to add a password to the link. To do this, click on the “Require Password” button and enter a password of your choice.

Step 6: Share the Link with Others

Once you have added a password to the link, you can share it with others. When they try to access the recording, they will be prompted to enter the password before they can view it.


By following these steps, you can easily password protect your Zoom recordings and share them with others without worrying about unauthorized access. Remember to keep your password secure and only share it with those who need to view the recording.
