I can't access the site

First, check whether the site is live on the web using this link at Down For Everyone or Just Me.

If the site is live but you cannot see it – it generally means that your IT group has a firewall filter:

  • Check with your IT Help Desk and ask:
    • Whether they can access the site
    • Whether they can whitelist the site for you
  • Still having problems, contact our Support Team.
I haven't received a login confirmation

First, check your spam filter or junk mail folder.

Sometimes we enter our email address incorrectly. The easiest way to check is:

  • Go back to your iHackOnline site and choose the Forgot Password link
  • Enter the email address that you registered
  • The system should send you a message within a couple of minutes
  • If you do not receive the message, contact our Support Team.
I can't see my video picture

First of all, check that you are using a Chromium based browser. That means web browsers like Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge and Apple Safari.

Then check that when asked, you are allowing access to your camera.

Refresh your screen and try again.

If you are not being asked to allow access to your camera:

  1. Check the webcam test site and ensure that your webcam is being activated
  2. Try clicking this link directly in your browser ->
  3. Check with your IT Helpdesk and ask whether is being stopped at your firewall – or whether streaming video is being prevented on your network.

Still having problems? Check your Chrome browser settings:

  1. Click the three dots that allow you to customise and control Chrome from the top right hand side of the menu
  2. Choose Privacy and security from the menu on the left hand side
  3. Choose Site settings
  4. Choose Camera
  5. Check that is appearing in the list of “allowed” sites
I am getting a security warning. What do I do?

Because we have the word “hack” in our name, the site gets picked up by your organisation’s Firewall Policy. To fix this:

  • Contact your IT group and request that all the domains be whitelisted
  • Check access on your phone.
