  • I’m trying to figure out why I can’t seem to get it to work on any of my browsers on Windows 10 slow ring. Any ideas?
  • I think it's trash that Apple won't let you login from a WebBrowser on iOS. I have a few elderly people I assist. One lost her iPhone and called me frantic. She had to wait until I was home a few hours later to login to her account for FMiP (she trusted me with her password) because mighty Apple decided that I couldn't login from my phone, and walking her through the FMiP app herself would've been impossible with her in that state. They also don't have a well known app that will let me login to someone else's iCloud from my phone to verify WITHOUT the risk of her data merging with mine. 1000000000x more comfortable doing so from a browser, but Apple thinks it knows better. If I logged in from a browser, they could still give her the "do you approve" from her iPad, but noooo.....
  • It's annoying that they block it, although all they're doing is a simple browser UserAgent check, so if you get a browser from the App Store that allows you to change the UserAgent, you can just imitate a desktop browser. "Lunascape" and "Sleipnir Mobile" are two free options that allow you to do this
