Is your webcam not working? Troubleshoot your webcam on Windows and Mac

Check your webcam

Check the drop down menu at the top of the webcam test to make sure your webcam is selected. If you’re using an external webcam camera, confirm that it’s turned on and connected to your device.

Check device connections

If using an external webcam, make sure your device recognizes it. Check your connections–make sure your webcam is fully plugged in!–and confirm that you have the latest drivers installed. See how to use an external webcam with macOS or Windows for more information.

Check browser permissions

You’ll need to give your browser access to your webcam to complete the webcam test. To test your webcam, make sure you click “Allow” when your browser prompts you for access to your camera. If you missed the prompt, or your test failed, you can manually check your webcam browser permissions in Chrome, Safari, or Firefox.
