Vimeo's updated security measures could have an impact on your website.
Today's a good day to remind you that PODI has you covered. Vimeo is implementing security enhancements that could impact videos embedded on your website and we're getting out in front of any issues.
Vimeo has long been used by many of our clients to deliver secure video content.
It's a great alternative to YouTube's very broad ownership policies and is perfect when you want to serve restricted videos to members or customers.

Dear Vimeo user,
At Vimeo, we are continuously enhancing our security standards to protect the privacy of your videos. In September 2021, we rolled out a security update that made new unlisted video embeds even harder for someone to discover if you haven’t shared the link with them. We are now extending that update to videos that were uploaded before September 2021, and asking users who want enhanced security to update their existing embed codes or change their video privacy settings.
You do not have to opt in to these enhancements, though we encourage you to do so. If you do nothing, we will automatically disable old embed codes on January 21, 2025.
Option 1: Update your video embed codes.
Option 2: Change your video privacy settings from “unlisted” to “password protected.”
Option 3: Do nothing.
We understand that changing codes may represent some effort, which is why we’re giving you plenty of time to make adjustments to your videos. We’re here to help, so don’t hesitate to contact us.
