Problem statement

This article explains why it is no longer possible to create ASWebAuthenticationSessionBrowser in MAUI SDK and a potential alternative. This can be used for suppressing the iOS consent prompt by setting PrefersEphemeralWebBrowserSession = true.

Then replace:

var result = await WebAuthenticator.Default.AuthenticateAsync(new Uri(options.StartUrl), new Uri(options.EndUrl));


var result = await WebAuthenticator.Default.AuthenticateAsync(new WebAuthenticatorOptions { Url = new Uri(options.StartUrl), CallbackUrl = new Uri(options.EndUrl), PrefersEphemeralWebBrowserSession = true });

Then, when instantiating the client, pass the custom browser class that was created:

new Auth0Client() { Browser = new CustomBrowser() }
