I am still seeing a log out on the iOS device following a log out on desktop on 6.5.0 (1700)

@ABorbaWMF Interesting!

I just re-tested the following:

  • login on sim app and then sim safari then logout sim safari
  • login on sim app and then desktop safari then logout desktop safari
  • login on desktop safari then on sim app logout desktop safari
  • login on device app then desktop safari then logout desktop safari
  • login on desktop safari then device app then logout desktop safari

None of these caused the app to logout anymore...

Is there a chance you were testing with an older build? 🤔

@Mhurd I was able to do it again on 6.5.0 (1700)

I am logging in first on the app and then desktop. Also, I am using a 2FA account.

Also, I am using a 2FA account.


Could you re-test w/o 2FA to confirm the fix for this ticket's repro steps? (a separate 2FA patch / ticket will likely be needed, but it would be good to confirm the fix we have since it affects more users)

Yes it appears to be working on a regular login without 2FA
