I've setup 1password families and requested my mom to join (as Guest). She had difficulties with initial sign up and did not know how to download emergency kit.
So I went on to do a "Begin Recovery" for her and managed to get the emergency kit scanned. But she kept getting a message on her Asus Zenphone Max running Android 6.01 (with 1password 6.7.3) stating "Unable to communicate with the server. Please check your network connection and make sure the sign-in address is correct".
I asked her to try it with mobile network instead of wi-fi and it was still the same. I read somewhere in this discussion forum that connection needs to be secure and it could be a firewall or anti-virus blocking things. So I felt there must be something weird in her end.
Surprisingly, I got the exact same result when I downloaded 1password (6.7.3) on a spare android I got (Galaxy A3 running Android 6.0.1) and tried scanning her bar code. Using my own emergency kit, everything worked perfectly.
I conclude the issue is with the emergency kit generated while using "Begin Recovery" feature. Is this a known bug? Could it be a specific bug with latest 1password version for guest family member?
