When someone within Stony Brook shares a Zoom recording link with you and requires authentication, you'll need to sign in with NetID/NetID (SSO) to access it.

Keep Zoom Cloud Recording Retention in mind when sharing/accessing cloud recordings, as cloud recordings are automatically deleted as per that retention timeline.
  1. If you get a link to a recording but are prompted to sign in (e.g., with email address and password), don't fill in the email/password. Instead, scroll down
    ""
  2. Scroll down and click on Sign in with SSO (SSO=NetID/NetID password)
    ""
  3. Enter the Company Domain which is "stonybrook"
    ""
  4. Then enter your NetID and NetID password:
    ""
  5. If you are prompted for a password* after signing in with SSO, ask the person who made the recording (the Zoom Host) to share that password with you. (Only the Zoom Meeting Host has this password).
    ""
    *There is a global setting in the Zoom portal:  https://stonybrook.zoom.us/profile/setting?tab=recording. Zoom hosts can change that setting so their cloud recordings by default do not prompt viewers for a password.
