Known Issues

We would like to make you aware of a couple of known issues with this release:

  1. Unable to connect to vaults on Android API versions less than 26.
    We intend to support access on Android from v5.0 API 21 on the SAFE Authenticator, and v5.1 API 22 on the SAFE Browser, however we are aware of an issue on Android v7.1.2 (API 25) and below, where the new SAFE Authenticator is unable to connect to a vault. See here to track logged issue.
  2. Authenticating the browser via Android switches the Authenticator back to it's login screen.
    Although the SAFE Authenticator is logged in, when a user clicks to authenticate the SAFE Browser they are returned to the login page of the SAFE Authenticator. Clicking to allow the Browser request still works, the user does not need to log in again, but this may be confusing. See here to track logged issue.
