Require Password on Local Network

Anyone else dealing with this? Even though I have the setting selected to prevent this, I am getting prompted for a password whenever I login. Seems to have started with the most recent version 4.7.1 (using High Sierra so still waiting for 4.7.5.0). While it affects all of my devices, it's become a giant pain on my main TV to type out my password with my remote. Is this a known issue that I can expect to be resolved or do I need to investigate further? I was affected by a similar bug a long time ago but it eventually resolved itself.

Hi, most likely this is due to your network configuration causing Emby Server to think the connections are remote connections. Are you using a vpn? Have you customized any emby server network settings?

Nah, no network settings have changed, and I use a vpn once in a while, but not during any of this stuff. I changed my password (though my old one worked when I was prompted), and now it only seems to be happening on my Fire TV device. I don't think that's it though... I wonder if the Android app hasn't yet got the word that I updated the server app version on Mac Os....

Anytime you change your password then on a one-time basis you'll have to sign into all apps again.

Ive signed in again and again, but still get prompted … only on Amazon Fire TV though; browser access & iOS apps are fine.

Unfortunately this issue continues to drive me crazy .. dunno why it’s back, but after spending several weeks away and not using it from my home TV,  it’s now presenting all of my users, some without a password at all, but my own profile shows the lock symbol despite having the ‘prompt for password’ option unchecked (even tried enabling & disabling). I had to simplify my password so re-entering it constantly from the TV remote won’t be quite as annoying.

Is there any way to refresh my app on the Fire TV so I know the latest update I made to the Mac OS server version is connected here? The Amazon Fire TV is the only device out of several that is having these issues ....also accompanied by others - I give up & just watch something outside of Emby about half the time instead of restarting the app & TV over and over hoping it'll work...though the repeated password entry requirement makes the troubleshooting that much more frustrating. @ebr

Can you try sideloading our standard android app on the Fire TV and let us know how that compares?

The Fire TV is always the most problematic version of the app I use, but these kinds of issues usually resolve themselves after a while. This one just happens to be the most irritating. For example, when I accidentally hit the "Prime" button, I then have to enter my password before I can get back to what I was watching on Emby.  

Admittedly I have no idea how to do that, but if it doesn't resolve soon, I'll surely have to figure it out & give it a whirl. Thanks.
