Google Chrome Attempting to Access Webcam Notification

Recommended Posts

While I am on a zoom call, my Eset keeps notifying me that Google is attempting to access my webcam, then it says that it approved access to the webcam.  This has been going on for a long time even when I am not on zoom but today while on zoom, it  clicked me off sound briefly and then worked again but took me off video and I had to keep clicking on the video to continue my zoom. I saw previous notes on your site but not a fix.

By Google do you mean Google Chrome or another Google application? Could you provide a screenshot for clarification?

I assume he's connecting to Zoom via Chrome browser;


Google Chrome

  1. Open the Chrome browser.
  2. Go to join.zoom.us.
  3. Enter your meeting ID provided by the host/organizer.
  4. Click Join.
    • If this is your first time joining from Google Chrome, you will be asked to open the Zoom desktop client to join the meeting.
    • (Optional) Select the Always open these types of links in the associated app check box to skip this step in the future.
    • In the pop-up window, click Open Zoom Meetings (PC) or Open zoom.us (Mac).

Alternatively, you can join the meeting without downloading or opening the Zoom app, by opening the meeting with the web client.
