I don't think so. They do need to sign in with their LDS Account, but they can go to the event page and (we have had it happen) click on any of the available links successfully.
And for one actual conference broadcast, a receiving unit said they could not connect to their URL, so I had someone else at the stake center do it, successfully. We then dropped the URL, and I walked the receiving unit assistant through the copy/paste function (he had tried to type in the URL, which was likely the problem). He successfully received the broadcast.
On several occasions, I have also signed into various available URLs after the conference had concluded and the receiving unit had dropped off the webcast.
Because there is a great possibility for mischief, I have emphasized to assistants that they select the correct link, and to the stake presidency that they select the correct individuals for the calling.
On the other hand, I do not wish to have it locked down too tightly. We have many occasions where a stand-in is running the receiving webcast due to on-call work, military deployment, and a host of other reasons. We appreciate the flexibility. And in the event of a total crisis or miscommunication, the event code is still available for recovery.
