    7. Your first stop after logging in is Learning Island. Follow the signs and hints to find the exit portal (shown here). Along the way, you will learn how to move your avatar and look around.

    Once you go through the exit portal, you'll be transported to Social Island where you can meet other Second Life Residents.

    Note: If you ever need to download the installer again, you can always get the latest version of the Second Life Viewer installer from https://secondlife.com/support/downloads/.

    ⚠️ Some anti-virus programs may cause Second Life to take a long time to install. If your installation seems slow, please be patient and wait for your anti-virus program to finish, at which point the viewer installation should complete normally. If you continue to have difficulty installing the Second Life viewer, please contact Support.
