If you’re using the CBC Gem app
If you find that you’re constantly being logged out of the CBC Gem app for iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Fire TV, or Android TV, there are a few things you can try.
The first step should be to ensure your device is up to date with the most recent operating system.
You should then check whether or not the CBC Gem app is up to date on your device.
If you have the most recent version of the app installed on your device and you’re still experiencing logout issues, please try the following.
- Delete the CBC Gem app from your device.
- Power off your device completely for a minute.
Don’t just put your device to sleep. If you’re using a connected device such as an Apple TV or Fire TV stick, physically unplug the power cable from the device for a minute.
- Once you have powered your device back on, reinstall the CBC Gem app.
