I was out and tried for the first time to check the forum on my android phone. The only login was to let them harvest my Facebook or Google login. There was no was to login directly and give my password. I never give my FB or Google as a way to login, so I will not be able to post new threads or replies from my phone.

Same here.

Now the past few weeks, maybe month, I've had to log in every time I try to comment or like a post.

I log in with my Google account, but that's only because it's my main email.

I won't log in with Google. That's how they track you. So I assume the new forum wants to crawl up my ass and see what I had for lunch?

I don't share the opinion of most but if Google wants to track me, I don't really care.

Do I want em watching? No. That's why I don't have Alexa haha.

Typing this on my iPhone. No problem here. I’ve only ever used my email address and access with Safari on the iPhone. Are you using https?

I used to go to a web browser on my phone and the standard sign in button was there. Now that is not anywhere, but a box says I can join the conversation if I give up my FB or Google. NEVER!!!!! I think I am going to have to find some new online guitar forum. This one is being taken over.

There was a discussion about this in the political section the other week, and it was quite eye opening.

Really though, it should come as no surprise seeing as the forum was bought by a marketting company.

Works fine. Just checked it on my Android using Firefox. User name and password boxes are above the FB and google logins.

<edit> just checked it on Chrome, same thing. Works fine. I'm not logged in on my phone, the login boxes show up fine.

What browser are you using? Any ad blocking add ons? Screen shot it for us.

I am using the default android browser. I checked it again and all I see is the register buttons. I checked and it wants my user name, email, password and then I would click register and agree to all the terms of the site. I should not have to register as a new user. I guess my browser is different?

I guess my phone is special. I really don't give much of a fuck because of this new forum. If I can't respond I will go to other sites. Harmony Central, Gear Slutz for example.

Browser is the default that comes with Android. It's an older Galaxy S Note 3. KitKat 4.4 I think.

No adblocker on the phone.

Screen shot. This is the only mention of signing in or up I can find. It's at the end of a thread.

Install Firefox or Chrome and report back. The advantage of either of those browsers (besides being able to login) is that you can sync with your browser on your other computers so you'll be able to have all your favs and tabs on your phone that you have on your laptop etc.

I don't use my cell for internet....or for that matter much of any other phone/non-phone related usage.....but I have noticed that there has been an increase of phishing/scamming type phone calls into my voicemail. If I don't know the number it goes to voice mail. Lately I've had a couple of RCMP/SIN calls, a CRA scam call, a survey where they leave an address in Quebec and just want my cell number and a few others.

When you're not logged in there is a generic avatar. Click on it.
