VSee download and installation instructions for Mac computers using the Safari browser.


If your host is using our VSee platform, this must be installed on the device you will use to participate in a session. VSee only needs to be installed once per device. 


You will be automatically prompted to download and install VSee when attempting to join a meeting but we recommend going through the process below and testing the connection/audio/video ahead of time to be sure everything is working before an actual session.
