Trouble accessing a Session or Backstage in Hopin?

If you're having trouble joining a Session or Backstage, make sure you've completed the following.

  • Ensure you have a ticket for the event
    • You need to have a ticket to join the event before you can access the backstage or a session, the event organizer should be able to provide that before the event starts.
  • Ensure you're logged into the correct Hopin account
    • Sometimes, attendees are redirected to the home page when they are not logged into the correct Hopin account with access to the backstage or session in question.
  • Refresh your web browser
    • Tip: Hold the Shift key when pressing the command+R (macOS) or Ctrl+R (Windows) combinations to reload the page without the cache.
  • Check your browser permissions
    • Click on the padlock icon next to the URL field and make sure Camera and Microphone are set to Allow for app.hopin.com web page.
  • Check the browser and make sure it is updated
    • Currently, using the latest versions of Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox on your laptop or computer guarantees the best experience.
    • Here are instructions for updating Chrome and here for Firefox. Other browsers aren't supported.
    • Note: Sometimes, third-party extensions can affect the experience by blocking some of the Hopin interface elements. That’s why we also recommend opening the event in Incognito mode (command+Shift+N on macOS or Ctrl+Shift+N on Windows) on Chrome or a Private tab (command+Shift+P for macOS or Ctrl+Shift+P for Windows) on Firefox.
    • On mobile devices, the experience will be limited for Organizers or Speakers and sufficient for event attendees.
  • Restart your web browser

    • Note: if a session is Moderated, you will not be able to join the session unless the moderator approves your request.
    • Most of the time, a refresh of the webpage will fix most problems.
    • If you tried the tips above and still unable to join a session or a Backstage, it could be due to one of the following reasons:
      • The Moderator or Organizer is not allowing you to enter the session or Backstage.
      • The maximum amount of people are already on screen is reached.
  • Try contacting the NJPN team in the event chat.
