Pop-up windows

When connecting to a service (such as Twitter, Facebook or MySpace), a pop-up window should appear in your browser so that you can safely enter your credentials. If nothing happens, it means that you first need to allow pop-up windows. The pop-up window contains fields belonging to the service you want to add in sobees for you to enter your credentials. The advantage of this method is that you never give us your password, you make a login on the service you want to connect and this service sends an authorization to sobees.

Following is a small user guide to help you do it depending on your browser.


  • Google Chrome


At the bottom right of your screen a message says that a pop-up is blocked.
