How to Fix “You have denied access to your devices” on OmeTV

Are you getting a “You have denied access to your devices” error on OmeTV?

Here’s the second part of the error message, “Your partners will not be able to see and hear you”.

If you are, you won’t be able to see yourself on OmeTV as your webcam will not work.

As a result, you cannot talk to strangers because OmeTV requires you to turn on your webcam.

However, you might not be able to turn on your webcam.

In this guide, you’ll learn why you’re getting the “You have denied access to your devices” error on OmeTV and how to fix it.

Why am I getting a “You have denied access to your devices” error on OmeTV?

You have denied access to your devices Ometv

You’re getting a “You have denied access to your devices” error on OmeTV because your webcam/microphone is disabled.

It can also mean that you’ve prevented OmeTV from accessing your webcam/microphone.

When you visit OmeTV for the first time, it will ask you for your permission to use your webcam and microphone.

You can either click on “Allow” to allow OmeTV to access your devices or click on “Deny”.

If you’ve clicked on “Deny”, your webcam will not work because OmeTV does not have access to it.

As a result, you won’t be able to use the website as your webcam is not available.

The error message can also be caused because you’ve turned “Camera access” off in your camera privacy settings.

By doing this, any app or website will not have access to your computer’s webcam.
