If Errors or Troubles Occur

The most likely causes of errors or troubles that happen when setting the mobile app are as follows:

  • The environment requires client certificate authentication, but no client certificate has been imported.
    For details on how to configure client certificate authentication, see the "Using Client Certificate Authentication on Mobile Devices (for Android)" page.

  • The login name or password is incorrect.
    For details on how to fix errors, see the "Troubleshooting for Access from Android Devices" page.

  • Unable to obtain a verification code for two-factor authentication
    If you can access kintone from your Web browser on your mobile device or PC, open the "Login Name & Password" tab in the "Account Settings" screen, and disable the two-factor authentication. Then, enable the two-factor authentication again to get a verification code.
    If you cannot access Kintone from any device, you need to ask the administrator to disable the two-factor authentication.
    For details, see the "Troubleshooting for Two-Factor Authentication" page.
