If needed, you can restrict access to your event based either on individual email addresses or whole domains.
 

Available in our Professional plan and higher.

 

In this article:


 

Set up restricted access

 

To enable restricted access:

  1. Open Event Settings and go to Privacy
  2. Select Require authentication and Require email address
  3. Toggle on Restrict who can access the event 

 

 

This option allows only participants with a certain email to access your event. You can either add a list of email addresses (max 1500) or restrict access for a particular domain. 


 

How it works for your participants


When participants join your event, they’ll be asked to enter their email address.

If their address matches the list in the restricted access settings, we'll email them a verification access code that allows them to enter the event.
 

To ensure the security of your event, your participants will be asked to verify their right to access via the code every time they try to join.


If the email address isn’t recognized, the user will see the following error message: You are not allowed to join the event with this email address.


 

Curious about more?

Is there a way of adding a list of disposable email domains from a csv file without having to add each address individually?

...in the context of restricting access to asking questions.

Hello @RobertSababady 

instead of adding e-mail to the list you can just add a domain or more domains and it will allow you to set it up that way. But it is not possible to do it in a csv file upload. It needs to be added manually into Slido.

That’s what I thought Ondrej. I will need to add that functionality as a feature request to minimise spam.

Thx

Hello @RobertSababady,

Our team will get your feature request so they can consider something like this for the future development. But currently this is not something that our team is working on.
