Crowdcast utilizes an individual login system for everyone. Both attendees and hosts are required to create an account using their email and password. (A password is optional for attendees.) These credentials serve as your access key to the platform and to your created/joined events.
To prevent two people from viewing the same content using the same login, our system employs a real-time access control mechanism. This mechanism monitors user activity and a second attempt to join the same live event is met with an error.

You also have the option to assign them the role of co-host, moderator, or speaker within any event. You can learn more about these options here:
