Single Sign-On (SSO) required to use Zoom Starting Jan. 11, 2022

December 1, 2021

Zoom Video Communications graphicStarting on Jan. 11, 2022, all UC Berkeley students, faculty, staff, and eligible affiliates will be required to sign into Zoom through Single Sign-On (SSO) using their CalNet ID and passphrase. Previously, you may have been able to sign in using the email and password fields available at and using the Zoom apps; this method of logging in will no longer work. We are making this change to increase security and make the sign-in experience consistent with our other campus services.

Take Action

There is no need to wait to begin logging into Zoom using your CalNet ID and passphrase, starting now will prepare you for this change that will occur during winter break. Logging in is slightly different depending on if you use a web browser or the Zoom app: 

  • To log into the Zoom website, go to, select “Sign In” then enter your CalNet ID credentials.

  • To log into any Zoom app, click the “Sign in with SSO” button or link then enter your CalNet ID credentials.

Here are specific log-in instructions for the most common platforms.
