Unhappy Capture 3. iOS app - use without login?

I just downloaded e new iOS iPad GoPro app which has been renamed Capture. It first asks me to login or create an account.

The previous app did not need a login to use. You had to connect to the camera, of course, but that didn't require any account or registration.

Is there a way to use the app without logging in, i.e. In a place without internet where you couldn't login like a ski slope?

This app update means I have lost functionality on my existing cameras.

Can this be correct?

Welcome to the New gopro way or the goproforums will look into the IOS app. FISH and say be safe than sorry. No way to Downgrade, I guess. if yiu backed up youer rIOS device if possible.

People are startingto report they can not login , password accepting? You said you have to login , did you login?

Are you with IOS 10, or older update? COuld that give you an issue?

Unhappy

I did not try to login. I would like to use the app without logging in.

I am concerned that there are many user situations where logging in would be impossible even if you wanted to.

For example, on a ski mountain, middle of a lake, etc. where you would have no internet connection. Or on an iPad without cellular connection away from wifi hot spots.

GoPro support has FAQ entries about it automatically logging out the user for various reasons including every 30 days just for security reasons. I can understand logging in/out of the app for cloud access reasons but I can't understand having to be logged into the app to use the camera I bought last year and didn't need to login. They have taken away key functionality.

I hope I am missing the "use the app without logging in" button but I cannot find it. Has anyone else found it? I don't see how a developer would require internet connection for a product specifically made and marketed to be taken to places without internet access.

Thumbs down Big Mistake - Do Not Download CAPTURE until

I just upgraded to Crapture this afternoon before going to shoot a wedding and My gopro app was gone !!!!

You have to connect to the internet - this is unacceptable - - - there was NO for warning of this and I just lost $2,000 plus dollars because of this bovine excrement update.

Please give into on how to use WITHOUT connecting to the internet !!!!

Try signing out of the app then trying to use the app without logging back in.

Now imagine you are in a place without any internet connection and need to use the app.

My point:
1. The new app requires you to be logged in to connect to a camera, even the old ones
2. The old app did not have this requirement
3. GoPro will sign you out from time to time for security reasons. Their FAQ says you will be forced to login every 30 days at the minimum.
4. GoPro puts out video after video and promotional material demonstrating their product in remote locations.
5. Many of these remote locations will not have internet access.
6. What if you got signed out since your last use and you now pull out your cameras in a remote location and cannot sign back in?

You have now lost the ability to control the cameras with your phone which was a major selling point to me when buying GoPro cameras in the first place.

Sign out of the app. Do not sign back in.

Airplane mode is not signed out.

The app then does not function until you sign back in.

There will absolutely be a time when GoPro has signed you out (at least every 30 days by their FAQ) and you will be in a place with no internet and will be unable to sign back in. This means you cannot control cameras with the app which was a major selling point to me in the many GoPro cameras I already own.
