* Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox are evergreen browsers that are automatically updated to the latest stable version. 

** Due to issues in Internet Explorer, the user must have Flash enabled to perform social network login using these versions of the browser.

*** Safari based browsers commonly do not accept third-party cookies and require the use of setSSOToken (even outside of an SSO group) during the login flow. Safari v9.0.2 and above on Mac OSX El Capitan /Yosemite and iOS 9.2 will not maintain a sessionExpiration other than 0, as 3rd party cookies are deleted when the browser is closed. Gigya only supports Safari browsers that have the option to accept 3rd party cookies from visited sites enabled by selecting Allow from websites I visit in the browser's Privacy settings.

Flash is required to support browsers blocking 3rd party cookies. Recommended Best Practice is to also implement an API domain prefix.

 

Cookie Requirements

All browsers must have cookies enabled. In order to avoid any third-party cookie compatibility issues, it is recommended to define a domain alias (CNAME) for Gigya's API calls to pass through (API domain prefix). This is also useful as some providers require callbacks to be sent to a domain on the client website. See Configure Domain Alias (CNAME) for instructions and see Blocked Third-Party Cookies for more information.
