How to Fix the Problem

Set the initial-scale to 1.0.

The Algorithm, in Simple Terms

Engine scans the HTML <head> element for a <meta name="viewport"> which contains initial-scale less than 1.0.

Why Is it Important?

For visually impaired users you should avoid scaling webpages to less than 100%.

Code Example

Correct use of viewport meta: <meta name="viewport" content="initial-scale=1">
