On the My Profile page, you can change your:

- Host Key (used for Personal Audio Conference)
After configuring your profile, click on the My Settings tab to set your In Meeting, Email Notification, Security, and Scheduling Privileges preferences.
Step 3. Install Zoom
Now we need to get the actual Zoom software installed on your PC/Mac. The easiest way to do this is to head to https://zoom.us/meeting and click Start to the far right of your Personal Meeting Room.
On the right side of your Personal Meeting row on the My Meetings page, click the Start button.
Once you click the Start button, your browser will begin the installation of the Zoom client and you will join your own Personal Meeting Room. Once successfully installed and the Meeting is started, you should be looking at yourself via your webcam. Feel free to click on End Meeting at the lower right-hand side of the Zoom interface.
