captiveportal login stops working 0 Recommended Answers 2 Replies 9 Upvotes

After a factory reset I started to have "CaptivePortal Login Stops Working" messages that resulted in not being able to connect to public internet providers.  After searching for information/posts I found that there were others that were having the same issue and I wanted to share my efforts and what worked.  I also want to mention that I was using the Pixel 3a e-Sim.  I chose to reinsert the Fi-Sim I was using and did another factory reset.  When I did the phone reset w/out Google VPN, and I was able to connect to public ISPs.  Still I was uncomfortable and I chose to do what another user did - he upgraded to the beta Android 10 system, which I did as well this morning.  Android 10 beta installed without a problem and I reloaded all of my software and have not had a problem with "captiveportal login stops" since then.  And I should also mention that I haven't noticed Google VPN to be part of the beta, nor an option on VPN on the phone.  I have no clue as to whether G-VPN will be a part of the final 10 version but I can tell you that I no longer have a problem connecting to public internet.

F/u to my earlier post.  Just thought I would share.
G-Vpn can be found in the Beta under Network & Internet.  You can also turn on G-Vpn using google account/networking/wifi assistant.
I enabled G-Vpn using both methods and each time I can no longer connect to public internet providers, but I haven't gotten the "CaptivePortal Login stops" message.
