Troubleshooting

Chrome on iOS isn’t scanning barcode, why?

Safari is the only browser that can have access to the camera on iOS devices. Apple doesn’t allow live scanning with third party browsers. Live scanning will only work in Safari. Unfortunately, it’s not possible to get around that limitation. Apple does not allow Chrome (or any other browser) to have that feature. So we recommend that you switch browsers. you can find full list of supported mobile browsers above.

The browser is asking for my permission to access my camera, should I allow it?

Yes, in order for the barcode scanner to work, you have to click ‘Allow’.

Do I have to click “Allow” every time? Is there a way save my answer?

Yes, in iOS Safari app click on the website settings icon at the upper left corner. Then click ‘Camera’ > ‘Allow’.

If you click on the sample view below, you’ll see the table that’s used for the demo above.
