Using Zoom with Non-UTokyo Account Sign-in
Table of Contents
A Zoom account of the University of Tokyo is currently prescribed as an account that you sign in with your UTokyo Account (account with email address
[10-digit Common ID]@utac.u-tokyo.ac.jp, e.g.
Therefore, if you are currently NOT signing in to Zoom using your UTokyo Account (e.g. using ECCS Cloud Email addresses setup with the username you chose (
email@example.com)), please follow the instructions on this page to switch to a Zoom account that uses the UTokyo Account for sign-in (account with email address
[10-digit Common ID]@utac.u-tokyo.ac.jp, e.g.
firstname.lastname@example.org) and use it from now on.
Since we are in the process of migrating to a unified sign-in method to enable centralized management, we plan to take measures such as disabling the account in question in due course. Furthermore, some of these accounts are not granted licenses (paid functions) because they are different from the prescribed format, and have functional restrictions such as a 40-minute meeting time limit (a temporary measure to ease restrictions on accounts with university email addresses which ended in the spring of 2022). Therefore, please change your sign-in method as soon as possible.
If you are signing in using your ECCS Cloud Email address beginning with your 10-digit Common ID (e.g.
Your Zoom account sign-in email address, e.g.
email@example.com, should have automatically changed to
firstname.lastname@example.org the System Changeover for Spring 2021. Sign-in with the changed email address should already be recognized as a UTokyo Account sign-in. Therefore, the below manual changes are not necessary. However, if you have manually created a new Zoom account using
email@example.com the sign-in email address after the System Changeover, the system will no longer let you sign in with it. Please follow the steps below to switch to an account that uses your UTokyo Account for sign-in.
If You No Longer Need Your Current Zoom Account
In the case that your account that uses non-UTokyo Account sign-in (e.g. accounts that use ECCS Cloud Email addresses setup with the username of your choice,
firstname.lastname@example.org) is no longer necessary, you can just abandon it and follow the instructions on the Sign-in Methods for Zoom page to start using the new Zoom account which uses UTokyo Account for sign-in.
If You Want to Transfer Data to Your New Zoom Account
Any UTokyo Zoom account that does not use a UTokyo Account for sign-in (e.g. a Zoom account that uses your ECCS Cloud Email with the username of your choice,
email@example.com) will soon be completely disabled.
For a while, you will still be able to sign in to such accounts, but please switch to your new Zoom account that uses UTokyo Account sign-in at the earliest possible.
Steps for non-UTokyo Account sign-in are explained in the next section.
Method of non-UTokyo Account Sign-in
For a while, you may still use Zoom with non-UTokyo Account sign-in after the System Changeover for Spring 2021 (such as accounts using your ECCS Cloud Email address with the username of your choice,
To use Zoom with such accounts, please visit the usual Zoom sign-in page,
https://zoom.us/signin, and enter your previous sign-in email address and Zoom password.
If you cannot find your previously saved meeting information (meeting room, cloud recording, etc.) after sign-inThis occurs when you use the new sign-in method instead of the aforementioned method for UTokyo Accounts. When you use the new sign-in method, a new Zoom account for UTokyo Account sign-in is automatically created, and you will be signed into this new account. You are not seeing your previously saved meeting information because the new account does not inherit the previous account's data. To access your previous data, sign out of the new account, go to the usual Zoom sign-in page at https://zoom.us/signin, and sign in using the previous sign-in email address and Zoom password.
