I need to allow camera access

I denied camera access and now I cannot enter the room.
When I try to enter the room, it asks me to allow ClassDo permission to use my webcam and microphone.

You might have blocked ClassDo or your browser from accessing your camera. Follow the steps below to re-allow your camera. If you like, you can choose to switch off your video once you have entered the room.
