  3. barbaraisl says:

    If you have installed ISL Light on an iOS device (iOS 11 and up), ISL Light should automatically be registered in the ‘Screen Recording’ list of applications. If this is not the case, we would require some additional information to troubleshoot this issue. Please visit our live chat, so we can investigate this issue further >
