How to decode meeting password from meeting link

Sorry, Note Sure If I submit in the right category
The meeting link look like this Error - Zoom
So it contains the password of the meeting,

In my web app I need user to enter meetingId and meeting password (which for both there is no copy button in the zoom desktop), so to make it easier for user I want to let user copy paste the whole zoom meeting url, then I extract meetingId and password from Url, meetingId is straight forward, password seems to be hashed. I tried base64, and double base64, seems not to correct.

Wondering how can I decode the password hash from URL

To Reproduce(If applicable)
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Create a meeting
  2. Click on green icon top left
  3. Copy url

If applicable, add screenshots to help explain your problem.

Device (please complete the following information):

  • Device: [e.g. Apple MacBook Pro (13-inch, M1)]
  • OS: [e.g. macOS Big Sur 11.2.1 ]

Hi @reza.rahmati,

There is no way for you to decrypt the password from the Zoom Join link, since it’s encrypted by Zoom’s internal systems, and releasing the method for hashing the password could allow attackers to bypass a unique join URL and enter a meeting directly, without being invited.


Thanks for jumping in @alexmayo :slight_smile:

Let us know if you have additional questions @reza.rahmati!


Thank you for response, then would you please consider adding a “copy” button for meeting if and password, because as soon as you get away from zoom that dialog containg information got closed, so usually to type meeting id and password in another app you will open that info dialog 7 8 times.
