How to Fix the Problem

Remove the “user-scalable“ attribute or set it to “yes”.

The Algorithm, in Simple Terms

Engine scans the HTML <head> element for a <meta name="viewport"> content attribute using “user-scalable“ with value “no” or 0.

Why Is it Important?

It prevents the user from scaling and zooming text.

Code Example

Correct use of viewport meta: <meta name="viewport" content="initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=2">
