Changes to Google Meet: Anonymous Users will be blocked

Effective Date: July 15, 2020

Google has announced that over the next few weeks they will roll out a change for companies that utilize G Suite for Education (as we do).  This change will block anonymous users from accessing our Google Meet meetings.  This change is being made for all education customers to reduce meeting disruptions. People without my.wheaton.edu accounts will still be able to join our Google Meet meetings, they will just need to be signed into a Google account of some kind.

Key Benefits and Features

  • This change will provide increased security for Google Meet meetings. 

Impact on College Community

  • Going forward, each person who joins a Wheaton College Google Meet meeting will need to be logged in to a Google account.  They do not need to be logged in to a my.wheaton.edu account specifically, but they do need to be logged into a Google account of some kind. 
  • Students can no longer click on a link to join a Google Meet meeting and join anonymously.  They will need to log into a Google account first.
