Some browsers, when used, will produce the following banner stating:

There's a problem with your browser

Your browser is not supported or you have private browsing switched on. Try updating to a modern browser or switch off private browsing.

Visit our support page for further information.

If you have upgraded your browser and switched from private browsing but you are still seeing the warning banner, try logging out of PlayHQ and deleting your browser cookies.

Best practice for scoring

To enable good performance, we also recommend the following steps prior to scoring a game:

  • Close all other programs / browsers running on your device
  • Close any other tabs running within your browser
  • Keep Operating System up to date
  • Connect device to charger or have a fully charged device before commencement of play
  • Ensure you are connected to a reliable WiFi or 4G connection
