Zoom has addressed various security concerns on their website.  For more information please review the following articles:

To keep Zoom meetings private and secure, and to prevent unwanted guests (aka "Zoombombing"), Zoom now requires a password for all meetings, including those scheduled with your Personal Meeting ID. 


If you didn’t already have a Personal Meeting ID password, Zoom will auto generate one for you.  You can click here or copy and paste the following URL into a web browser to obtain or change the password for your PMI: https://zoom.us/profile/setting#schedule_meeting_options


if you scheduled a meeting with your Personal Meeting ID without a password, please update your invitation or otherwise notify attendees of the new password so that they will still be able to connect.
