Too many redirects from email link (Gmail app -> Safari) on iOS on site with SSO

Can anyone else reproduce the “Safari cannot open the page because too many redirects occurred” error when tapping the “View Topic” in an email in the Gmail app on iOS?

Reading the email message in Apple Mail and opening the link in mobile Safari does not cause this issue.

I can’t reproduce it. Note also that the Gmail app doesn’t open Safari, it opens a SafariViewController instance within the app. Does the site you’re getting this error on use SSO by any chance?


It does not reproduce here on meta - I tried it with your reply, Penar.

Yes, logins are controlled with SSO (Wordpress).

Changing how links are handled to Gmail app -> mobile Chrome app did not change the result - I still get the error: ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS.

Isn’t this a duplicate of SSO redirect loop with Lax cookies, but only for my IPhone?! ?

Try changing the same site cookies setting.


Changing same site cookies to Disabled fixes the issue - thanks.
