If you've turned off the ability to automatically connect to a Webex device or you're having problems connecting to it automatically, you can manually connect to the device instead.

1

In the app header, click Connect to a Device to view a list of nearby devices and select the device you want to use from the list.


 

If you select Search for a device, you can search for a device by name, and you'll also see a list of recent devices you've connected to previously.

If your device doesn't show up in the search results or you can't connect to the network to even search for the device, click Connect using 9-character code. Then, enter the code that's on your device and click Next.

2

When the PIN displays on the device, just enter it in Webex. If you're in a meeting room with several people, you all use the same PIN to connect your app to the device.


 

You must enter the PIN that displays on the device. You cannot use the Host PIN for Webex Meetings.


 

The PIN remains valid for 5 minutes after it first displays. So, if you make a successful connection, you won't be asked for the PIN in any additional attempts within that 5 minute period.

If you try to connect after 5 minutes, you have to enter a new PIN.
