Enabling 3rd Party Cookies for Chrome “Incognito” Mode and Safari for Mac

If you are logged in to your media library or LMS, yet you are being prompted to access your virtual room session as a “guest”, you may need to enable third party cookies on your web browser. 

Specifically, for Google Chrome "incognito" mode (chrome version 83 and above), and for Safari on Mac, 3rd party cookies are blocked by default. You will need to enable the feature manually, to allow your credentials to be passed from your hosting LMS or media library to the virtual room.
