How do I enable my microphone and camera?

You were prompted to allow access to your microphone and camera - but you accidentally denied access. Mistakes happen, and it's easy to re enable access in your browser.

There are two ways to enable access to your microphone and camera:

Restart or re-install your browser

When you restart or re-install your browser, it refreshes your settings. When you visit Rabbit again, you should be prompted to allow access to your devices.
