Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. By default, anyone with the link (or Meeting number) and password may attend a Webex Meeting or Event. As part of the advanced scheduling options, a meeting host can require that attendees register.

The meeting number is a nine-digit unique identifier that allows you to enter the correct meeting when calling in to a Webex session. The meeting number also allows you to join a meeting for which you do not have a link. You’ll still need to supply the password, if it has been set. The Meeting number is found in your Webex email invitation or calendar entry. It can also be found on the Meeting Info tab within a Webex session. Or ask the meeting host for the Meeting number.
