Sometimes, while trying to host a Zoom meeting, you may come across the error code 3113 if you have not enabled either the Passcode or the Waiting Room security options.

However, there could be other underlying reasons why the app triggers the error and you fail to host the meeting.

Why do I see the Zoom error code 3113?

  • A passcode or a Waiting List is not enabled – Configuring a Zoom meeting often requires activating the Passcode and if that is not yet done, the error shows up.
  • Outdated Zoom application – If the application is not yet updated, that’s another very important reason why you may see the Zoom error code.
  • A glitch with the Zoom app – It could be possible that there’s an issue with the app itself and hence you encounter it.
  • Incompatible Zoom version with Waiting Rooms – Chances are, that the version of the webinar software you are using does not match the waiting room requirements.

At the same time, keep in mind that Zoom requires either a passcode or a waiting room for the following account types:

  • Free Zoom accounts
  • Accounts with a single license
  • Business accounts with a minimum of 10 to a max of 100 licenses
  • Pro accounts with two or more licenses
  • Government accounts with less than 100 licenses
