[expo-auth-session] Two app options on return to app

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 43.0.0
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): Android
  3. Add the appropriate “Tag” based on what Expo library you have a question on.

Hello, I’m using expo-auth-session in the managed workflow to collect Instagram user data through its official API, it’s working fine on the development environment (through the “expo run:android” command), but once a build APK is created when the user makes the authorization process and the redirect starts there is a popup asking “Open with” and two options for my app, the first one works perfectly the second one goes back to the app but does nothing, I didn’t test on IOS.

Here is the image that represent it:

When I was developing I tried to do the google sign-in process but was stuck in the same error, partially resolved by implementing google native sign-in. I verified my schemes in app.json but didn`t identify wrong on it, as follows:


    "expo": {
        "name": "Secreet",
        "slug": "secreet",
        "version": "1.0.0",
        "orientation": "portrait",
        "icon": "./assets/icon.png",
        "scheme": "com.davidtmiranda.secreet",
        "splash": {
            "image": "./assets/splash.png",
            "resizeMode": "contain",
            "backgroundColor": "#ffffff"
        "updates": {
            "fallbackToCacheTimeout": 0
        "assetBundlePatterns": ["**/*"],
        "ios": {
            "supportsTablet": true,
            "usesAppleSignIn": true,
            "bundleIdentifier": "com.davidtmiranda.secreet",
            "googleServicesFile": "./GoogleService-Info.plist",
            "config": {
                "googleSignIn": {
                    "reservedClientId": "com.googleusercontent.apps.--------------------"
        "android": {
            "versionCode": 1,
            "adaptiveIcon": {
                "foregroundImage": "./assets/adaptive-icon.png",
                "backgroundColor": "#FFFFFF"
            "package": "com.davidtmiranda.secreet",
            "googleServicesFile": "./google-services.json"
        "web": {
            "favicon": "./assets/favicon.png"

also, my authSession code looks like this:

    const useProxy = Platform.select({ web: false, default: true });

    const client_id = ---;
    const redirect_uri = "https://auth.expo.io/@davidtmiranda/secreet";
    const scope = "user_profile";

    const site =
        "https://api.instagram.com/oauth/authorize?client_id=" +
        client_id +
        "&redirect_uri=" +
        redirect_uri +
        "&scope=" +
        scope +

    const discovery = { authorizationEndpoint: site };

    const [request, response, promptAsync] = useAuthRequest(
            redirectUri: makeRedirectUri({
                native: redirect_uri,
            scopes: [scope],
            clientId: String(client_id),

    useEffect(() => {
        if (response?.type === "success") {
    }, [response]);

    function GetInstagramID() {
        return promptAsync({

Any suggestions about how to solve this problem? I believe it is schema-related but could not identify what is wrong.

I was able to work around this problem by following steps described on this github issue,
