Test Webcam

  1. Open your web browser.
  2. Type com into your browser’s address bar.
  3. Click the Check My Webcam button on the website’s landing page.
  4. When the pop-up permission box appears, click Allow.

Your webcam’s feed should then appear in the black box on the right-hand side of the page, indicating that the camera is working. If you’re using an external webcam connected via USB — and if no image appears after completing the webcam test — then you should try disconnecting and reconnecting it.
