iRule 4.1 has produced questions and comments concerning the new login method. This short tutorial is to help explain the changes that have been made to the login process.
iRule has always required a Google account in order to program and sync the application. We never required a Google+ account because of Google's authentication method. As of April 20, 2015, Google will no longer be supporting our previous authentication method. For more information on this authentication change click here
In order to conform with the authentication change, the legacy sign in method will no longer work for iRule accounts. You will need to use the Google+ login method within the application to sync your handset. Google+ is not required on this account in order to complete the syncing process.
Users were reporting issues of syncing failure prior to the release of 4.1. One of the solutions was to allow access to less secure applications. Many users were concerned with the need to allow access to less secure apps and we agree. The change to use Google+ authentication will no longer require users to change security settings within their google account to be able to sync.
