Re: mandatory login after upgrade

Since I use GoPros for my business, I had not spent much time looking at lower cost alternatives, since they're pretty cheap (for what I do).  But, since this came up, I've been reading about GoPro alternatives.  The Yi 4K looks like a good bet.  (Ordered 2 last night.)  I'd stick with GoPro out of loyalty - buying from a Chinese company isn't my first choice, but practical considerations are important.  And, as a customer, I like to feel respected.  In this regard, GoPro is a failure.

GoPro finally released a bypass to the required login. The App update came out this morning. I did a test using airplane mode and indeed was able to use the camera app when I "purposely" logged out. I've never had to log out, it always did so automatically.

Sure hope GoPro really did listen. I loved GoPro, but they lost my trust multiple times through the release of Capture.

Let's hope they refocus on the customer again as shown with this update.

Glad to find a solution, and releaved to see gopro listened to their fans.  Requiring login, internet connection, data mining, and any attempt to leverage customers are really foolish short sighted ideas.  If anyone makes a great product or service they won't have to force it on people, we will happily sign up for it.

Re: mandatory login after upgrade

jefft. Just to be clear are your saying if we have no internet coverage for more than 24 hours your still going to lock us out of using our cameras through the Capture App.

Re: mandatory login after upgrade

@Anonymous - You're not going to be locked out at all. The 24 hours is in regards to how often you're asked to log in. If you are without service, you can continue to skip the login.

That will work for me. The functionality is secure in any environment eigh or without service. I can live with an option to log in voluntary. The daily reminder is okay too since I have the option of not logging in if I choose. Thanks.

Thank you, this was the answer I believed until implied otherwise. :-) So glad this issue is resolved.
