    Default Can't log in with Android

    Got this new tablet running Android 6 (Marshmellow), but I can't log in to NGF. I know I enter the correct username and pw, but it says one or both is incorrect. I've tried and tried, no luck. I know some people use Android devices on here, so what's my problem?

    When I use my iPad, the virtual keyboard is touchy and other times unresponsive. I can’t make the keyboard drop down-ether. Sometimes it won’t scroll. Makes typing a hassle. Had a difficult time typing this.

    The RCA has a keyboard, so I use that most of the time. I tried the touch screen keyboard too. Nothing works. I use up my free tries, then have to come in and use the computer so I don't get locked out. I've downloaded the app, doesn't work. Nothing works.

    Try typing your username and password into a notepad-like app or anything where you can actually see, in plain text, exactly what you're using.

    Then, copy/paste the username into that field and the password in that field.

    If that doesn't work then you know it's not a repetitive typo and it may be the "special" character(s) you're using in your password.

    Some smart mobile devices send special characters in unicode that php doesn't understand.

    The mods may be able to suggest other codes or a workaround.

    Good luck.

    Sam,, you have over 10,000 posts on here. I think the site is trying to tell you that you’ve waisted too much time here. It’s kind of a intervention.

    May be right! Well, the other POS eBay arrived. Can't resist a new toy......it's only $100. Problem is, I say that a lot. But it's windows, I'm on it now. Come with 35gb of storage, of which 28gb is available, and windows takes 20gb of that. So I have 8gb. But I can do more, as much as I hate to say it. The RCA didn't see wifi at the park, but my phone picks it up fine, not sure what the deal is there, me or it. I'll try this one tomorrow. Fun fun fun.

    If it's Windows 10, it may be an upgrade from a previous version. If so, there's a way for getting rid of the old OS plus the whole Win10 (no-longer needed) upgrade files. Let me know.

    Here's a neat, safe, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] you can use to determine just what's on the drive.

    WinDirStat is a disk usage statistics viewer and cleanup tool for various versions of Microsoft Windows.
    I breathe Windows, so let me know.
