Apple Inc. Safari web browser is cautious about sharing information with sites that are not located at the destination in the users' current address bar. Exceptions are made for sites the user has visited in the past. This caution is technically expressed in the sharing of "cookies" with other websites.

This can be an issue with some of the videos posted to Isaak-Sakai privately through the Echo 360 integration.


The most up to date information on using Safari with echo360 can be accessed at: Safari Recommended Browser Configuration. The information below may no longer be accurate.
