Looks like the web view used to authenticate with SAML does not support WebAuthn, is there a way to open the external browser instead?

Hi johnhk,

Unfortunately Apple explicitly block support in WKWebView (we can't see any good justification for doing so). Apple themselves are reportedly working on a solution, and we're also working on a workaround we hope to have in a future version of Viscosity.

In the meantime, it's possible to use Viscosity's inbuilt FIDO1 (U2F) support to perform the authentication (FIDO2 devices are backwards compatible with U2F). ... viscosity/
