I've been using the IOS StackExchange app for a couple of years now, without a problem. Today I got a new iPhone Xs, downloaded the app, and tried to log in using Google, the way I always do. Each time I tried, I got the error message shown below, so I'm doing what it says. All of my other Google logins on the same phone have worked fine, and my StackExchange/Google login works fine on my desktop. Is there some strange interaction among StackExchange, IOS, and Google that I'm not understanding?

I looked at this similar question, with an answer suggesting unblocking cookies in Safari. I checked, and they are not blocked. I'm at a loss.

  • The error message is misleading; There's no point to report here since the app development is frozen and there's nobody to fix such bugs. thanks for reporting anyway. Nov 13, 2018 at 7:22
  • @ShadowWizard: Oh, I see. Thanks for letting me know.
