does not authenticate in Chrome 64 bit on Windows

Is there are reason the site does not authenticate in Chrome?..... The old portal worked just fine and acutally so did the new site until the cut. If you are trying to avoid chromecasting to TV... you failed again comcast... keep in mind you can chromcast the full screen, just like you can on any android phone.... please just fix the log-in issue with chrome so we can just move on.

I have read on the forums that a lot of people using chrome not being able to connect. I never had chrome installed on my win 10 puter. Just downloaded it and made no changes to settings and I was able to connect. Here is my chrome version:

Why do you think it's disabled by default? Enabling 3rd party cookies is a serious privacy issue. So to use their site, Comcast requires you to expose yourself to this issue. Whaaaaaaat?

FWIW, Chrome allows all cookies by default. You can read about it here. The problem with the Xfinity TV portal is it is creating cookies across 2 domains; comcast.net & xfinity.com.

 

The beauty of Chrome is that it allows you to make multiple user profiles, each with its own settings, so you can have one profile that is less secure for visiting sites like the Xfinity TV portal, and a more secure profile for when you want maximum privacy.
