Hello! I am trying to get a unique URL for customers to be prompted to leave reviews. When I test the below link on Chrome it works fine but nothing pops up on Safri. Does anyone know what could be going on?

I don't use Safari much, but when I do, it gives me the prompt to sign in to leave a review. See below. What exactly are you seeing?

[SOLVED]. Google will not load the review link if you are using a VPN. It suddenly occurred to me to try disabling my VPN temporarily and the link review then worked fine, in both Safari and Chrome.

 

Hope this helps!
