You don't need a Webex Meetings account to join meetings that you're invited to.

Sign up for a free account

If you haven't signed up yet for a free plan, go to the Webex site and click Start for Free. Enter your email address, and then follow the instructions to request an account.

When your account is ready, we'll send an email. Click the link in the email to create a username and password.


If you're having trouble signing in to your free account, received a blank activation email, or haven't received an email yet, here's a workaround.

Sign in to your Webex site

Your Webex site is where you go to quickly start, schedule, or join a meeting. It's also the place where you can find tools for integrating Webex Meetings with Microsoft Outlook, Google Chrome, and other third-party apps. Sign in to your Webex site.


Bookmark your Webex site for quick access.

Host your first meeting

To quickly start a meeting, you can use your Webex Personal Room. Think of your Personal Room as your very own virtual conference room. It has an easy-to-remember URL that you can share with your team. The URL never changes, so people always know where to meet you.

To start a meeting now, on the home page of your Webex site, click Start a Meeting.


Lock your Personal Room to keep uninvited people from joining your meetings.

Connect to audio and video

Before you join your meeting, you'll see a preview window where you can choose how you'd like to connect to audio and video. The easiest way is to connect using your computer audio.

You can also turn off your video, before you join. Webex remembers your preference for your next meeting.

Invite others to your meeting

To invite others to the meeting, click More Options > Invite and Remind or copy the meeting link and share it in an email or instant message.

Your attendees won't need to get a Webex account or download anything extra. The email invitation has all the details they need to join.


Share a quick start guide attendees to help them get started.

See who joined the meeting

To make sure everyone you invited made it to your meeting, open the Participants panel and check the list.

Record the meeting

Record your meeting so you can refer back to it later and so people who couldn't attend don't miss anything. With a free plan, your meeting recordings are saved to your computer.
  • On Windows, recordings are stored in My Computer > Documents.

  • On a Mac, recordings are stored in the Home folder.

Share content

Keep everyone informed and engaged by sharing your screen. Anyone in a meeting can share their screen so everyone can see what's being discussed..
