Dual account video and web conferencing endpoints have both a personal user account and a shared room account that are registered on the same device. When such an endpoint joins a meeting (e.g., after completing a pairing process) it raises a number of security, etc. challenges. To address these types of challenges, various solutions are presented herein through several techniques. In particular, the techniques may include support for devices utilizing proximity in a reverse fashion (i.e., personal mode endpoints may use ultrasound pairing to detect that the personal user is in proximity to a device and allow them to perform authenticated actions directly using the device’s user interface (UI)). The techniques may further provide a way of pairing personal devices with clients without the need for ultrasound or manual pairing.
