    Any security issues with using Tapatalk as your forum reader? It is very convenient especially if you cruise several different boards. I see a lot of guys using it. What's the consensus and anything troubling we should know about?
    Thanks

    Thanks PI! more info please ........

    I do not see orbot or orbweb for iphone. Is this only for android?

    Is VPN a good measure when using tapatalk from mobile?

    How do you configure Tapatalk to work with orbot?

    I would avoid the single logon option with Tapatalk ID

    I believe the tapatalk app connects directly to the Internet bypassing browsers. Using Orbweb browser to visit https://thinksteroids.com is TOR-secure.

    A quick Google search on Tapatalk and security vulnerabilities turns up quite a few issues. Tapatalk is very popular among users but not so much among many forum admins because of this and some of its sneaky business practices. The most secure way to access MESO is visit it on your mobile browser (Torweb or VPN) and to avoid Tapatalk.

    Thanks Millard.

    Even when you avoid the single login option with a tapatalk ID it always shows you as logged in on the forum when you open tapatalk. Does it automatically log you off when you close tapatalk or are you always logged in?

    You remained signed up using Tapatalk. This allows instant notifications on your mobile which is admittedly convenient to many members.
