\section{Riot for Android/iOS}
Using Riot on Android or iOS without logging in is not possible at the moment. As an alternative, you might want to try opening Riot Web in a web browser (such as Firefox), although be aware that Riot Web hasn't been optimised for mobile usage and you may encounter various issues not present when used from desktop.
