Having trouble logging in on Android?

Post by nick » Fri May 18, 2018 11:28 pm

Having 'data saver' switched on with an Android phone is known to affect certain aspects of being online. One of the problems is that it stops you being able to sign in to PHPBB forums eg. this one.

To switch it off, follow this guide:

I have data saver turned in and it just takes a few attempts to login. Get there in the end.

Was about ready to go on the fb page and ask mind

It's a ropey and unreliable feature of Android. Even Google themselves say to expect weird behaviour with certain features online! They really should have developed it a bit more before releasing onto phones.

I would just switch it off. It's more trouble than it's worth when you can get WiFi everywhere these days and most good websites are optimised to use as little data as possible anyway.
