  • Hi Jan,

    Thank you for your blog(s)!

    Have you ever heard of issues with the combination of ByD Mobile apps, iPhone, SSO and Multi factor authentication? The authenticator app seems to close the ByD app, so users are not able to log in.

    We do not have this issue with Android.

     

    Regards,

    Peter

    • Hi Peter,

      I’m not aware of any issues around the authenticator. Could you explain more detailed how to reproduce what you have described and on what iOS & iPhone you had this issue in a ticket? Christian Böhrer: Any idea?

      Cheers

      Jan
