True Key icon

Jump to solution

The True Key icon in chrome on Windows 10 started displaying black with red 'OFF' instead of blue.  However True Key still seems to be working ok. What is the significance of the icon displays? Can't find any way to change this back.

Re: True Key icon

Jump to solution

Good morning Richard,

As I said earlier, Oi promised I would get back to you when I knew more. While some issues with the True Key extension not displaying the right status (showing off while you are still logged in to True Key) can be fixed by re-logging in to True Key, we have confirmed that this behavior might continue after that. Good news is that this will be addressed completely with our next release (4.16) due to come out next week.

Thanks,

Marc D.

Hi Richard,

The meaning of this is to show you when you are logged off from your True Key app. To get this synced for the first time you would need to log off and then log on to your True Key account.

Your off status icon should change to blue to show that you are logged on and whenever you log off it will display the off status.

Thanks,

Marc D.

Thanks for this.  I went into the app, logged out, logged in again, and the icon returned to normal.  Some observations:-

* No help docco explained what the icon meant

* No UI elements explained that there was a sync problem

* Support chat was absolutely worthless, thank goodness I didn't let them remote my PC, who knows what havoc would have ensued

Given the timing of Richard's issue and mine, I suspect a change somewhere has upset some machines.  Only one of my many machines had this issue.  I suspect others out there will have the same concern, won't be able to find an answer either, and won't understand whether they are at risk.  Some documentation needs updating and preferably the app needs to make it clearer what this 'OFF' condition means and how to rectify it.

Cheers

                        I have brought your comments up to the Lead Engineer, perhaps he will add to this discussion once he is in the office. I might add if I may, that accolades go to MarcD as he constantly takes his personal time to add to the *TrueKey* discussions. In an effort to assist user's issues. Even on the weekend during his time off, away from the office.

                       All one has to do is go through the threads and see for themselves.

I agree with you, lack of information might be due to the fact that this is totally a new thing introduced with our new release and that has been corrected already.

Please don't hesitate to reach us in case of any other concerns.

Yes, logging out and in again clears the issue. However, it keeps displaying the wrong icon even after that.  Today, I logged in Ok and the icon showed Blue. Then logged in to a web site using instant login ok. Shortly after I noticed the icon displayed OFF again, although I never logged out of True Key. Despite that when clicking on the icon True Key opened still logged in with the list of logins. Also I was able to login to this forum using the instant login without having to login again. So it seems that this icon isn't being correctly synced, and arbitrarily shows OFF when still logged in.
