To join a SignalWire room for the first time, a participant may have been given one or more of the following:

SignalWire domain and room name
Room name: example-room

Full SignalWire room URL

Telephone number for voice only participants

Guest PIN

Moderator PIN

Administrator user name and password

SignalWire can be opened in a new Web browser window to make it easier to switch tabs frequently between calls.

To join SignalWire for the first time, enter the SignalWire domain or full room URL in the browser address bar. As a first time user, SignalWire will prompt for name and email address

Enter the full name and email address to be shared with other conference participants. This information will be used for the banner (also known as a "lower-third" among media professionals) that is displayed with the video feed or avatar during conferences.

SignalWire uses to display a custom image when you mute your video feed during a conference. Navigate to, sign up for an account and use the email address that will be displayed in SignalWire to set up the avatar.

After entering full name and email address information (and upon joining a room), SignalWire will prompt for granting permissions to the browser. As SignalWire uses the device's camera and microphone to participate in conferences, the browser permissions will need to be granted for both.

Below are some examples across browsers for setting up browser permissions:

Google Chrome

Microsoft Edge


Safari for Mac

Safari for iOS
