How do I use unique  session  links?

Using unique session invitation links, rather than open, guest links, are is the best way to ensure only the participants that should be in a Collaborate session is are able to access it.

Session roles and permissions are an additional way to configure a participant’s permissions within a Collaborate session.

How do I restrict  access to my Collaborate sessions? 

Guest links are public links that anybody who has the link can use. For example, if you send the link to a student and they share the link, anybody they share the link with can join, and so on. If you want to keep your session secure, don't use guest links.
