Jitsi Meet - unauthorized access

Hello! I’m new to Jitsi Meet and I just tried a test meeting by writing ‘Hello’ in the Start a New Meeting box and it opened a new meeting with a complete stranger!! I’m wondering how this could have happened? I came across Jitsi due to privacy concerns on other platform and now I’m worried about using it!! Many thanks, Hannah

Jitsi distinguishes conferences by name. You have to choose an unique name to avoid unexpected guests (not such as “test” or “hello”). If you open the conference “hello”, the probability is very high that someone has already opened a conference named “hello” and you just gonna join it.

If you have opened a conference once, you can set a password, so no one can entry without knowing it.

ok got it, thanks so much!!
