Social Login (OAuth) Problems?

Hermit’s default settings are strict, because they enhance your privacy and keep you safe. But some sites require you to loosen your security settings for login to work correctly.

  1. Launch your Hermit Lite App.
  2. Swipe in from the right edge to reveal the “Quick Settings” sidebar.
  3. In the Quick Settings list, tap on the “More Settings” button.
  4. Tap on “Open Links in Lite App”, and turn it ON. The default is off.

This is required because, by default, any links to open google.com or facebook.com will be opened in your default browser (not Hermit) or else will be opened in Incognito Mode within Hermit.

Step 2: Turn Off “Block Popups”

  1. Launch your Hermit Lite App.
  2. Swipe in from the right edge to reveal the “Quick Settings” sidebar.
  3. Tap on “Block Popups” to turn it OFF (not orange in color). The default is on.

Step 3: Turn Off “Block Third-Party Cookies”

  1. Launch your Hermit Lite App.
  2. Swipe in from the right edge to reveal the “Quick Settings” sidebar.
  3. In the Quick Settings list, tap on the “More Settings” button.
  4. Under “Behavior”, tap on “Block Third-Party Cookies” to turn it OFF. The default is on.
