If you enabled the “embed password” feature in the first step of this tutorial, the password is embedded / encrypted at the end of your URL; if your guests use this link to join, they won’t be prompted to enter the password.
NOTE: The encrypted ending of this URL changes if you change your password. If you change your password, be sure to share the new URL with your attendees.
TIP: You can confirm if a URL has an encrypted password attached to the end. It will have a long line of gibberish that begins with:   ?pwd=
For example:
https://wakeforest-university.zoom.us/my/thompssw?pwd=Mm1MVGRIMlp1MFlxYkw3bWhxRDYvZz09
