When trying to either enter your host's waiting room, or to start the meetingwith your participants in Safari, you receive a Safari error message Safari can't open the specified address


Example of message:




Possible Causes

Safari throws this error when it cannot find the protocol for launching an application; this happens when a program (in this case, Zoom) is not installed. You'll need to install Zoom.


To see which one you'll need to install for your meeting, check which Install button appears in the lower left-hand corner of your waiting room page. (This is the page that has the "Enter Waiting Room" button on it.)



See our support article for instructions to install Zoom on a Mac computer using Safari.
