Error Message: “Connectivity Issues with Bonjour”

Mylio uses a common background service called Bonjour to broadcast and connect devices on the same network. In some instances, Bonjour may not run properly causing your devices to not display in the Dashboard.

Turning on Bonjour on iOS, Android

Bonjour for mobile devices is a service that runs automatically in the background. If this service is not running as expected, simply restarting (powering off, then powering back on) the device may fix this issue.

On Android devices, please ensure you are not running a package disabler that may be disabling this core service.
