    Does anyone know why Tapatalk has the following error when you try to log into glocktalk?

    Forum Error
    The forum you are visiting is temporarily closed, please try again later

    It sucks not being able to use tapatalk for glocktalk

    GT was hacked via a bug in Tapatalk several months ago, and Eric disabled it, IIRC.

    You can PM him for details.

    It's been made clear Tapatalk is not coming back. It sucks but if tapatalk is vulnerable to hacks then it doesn't need to. It's not worth the risk to the owners and members privacy.

    Wonder if any of the other forums that allow Tapatalk have ongoing issues with hacking, or if it's been patched?

    It might have been fixed(in fact, probably likely has been).. but I remember when this all happened, Eric was fairly irate w/ how Tapatalk handled the problem. He alerted them to it, then they began spamming his email box w/ apologies, etc.... I wish the thread was still available. I'm guessing his keyboard was smoking(or his ears were) as he was typing that message.

    Dammit!

    I just bought tapatalk because of the good things I read about it here a few months ago, and now I can't use it on the only 2 damn forums I wanted it for :steamed:

    Sorry that happened Weiser..

    Eric announced several months ago he was shutting down tapatalk access.

    I didn't see it because I didn't have the means to get the app then. I just remembered everyone here raving about it a while ago
