Password option

I’ve been unable to use the password option. I add a password and text it to the participants, but they can get into the meeting without the password, just by clicking on the meeting link. 'what am I missing?
Thank you,

Hi there!
Either your focus user is not joining the room correctly or you might have misunderstood the password field in the jitsi room. You need to click on add password and then press enter after typing the password.
