One UI 5.1.1 update breaks Pokemon Go on Galaxy devices

The One UI 5.1.1 update has brought something unexpected to the users of Samsung Galaxy smartphones. Apparently, after receiving the One UI 5.1.1 update on their Samsung Galaxy handsets, some customers have been unable to log into Pokemon Go. Many users have reported that they are unable to get into their own accounts and are seeing pop-up notifications like “This account has failed to authenticate.” So it is clear that the gaming application, Pokemon Go, on your Galaxy handset has probably been damaged by One UI 5.1.1.

To find out what’s causing the issue, several reviewers have logged in to Pokemon Go from their newly launched Galaxy Z Flip 5, which was pre-installed with One UI 5.1.1. Surprisingly, the gadget doesn’t have any crashes or log-in problems with Pokemon Go, as we didn’t go for any updates.
