Dark mode

Dark mode reduces the amount of light emitted by displays, reducing eye strain in dark environment, as well as reducing the amount of power some devices use.

When in dark mode, the colour scheme changes from light backgrounds with dark text to dark backgrounds with light text.

It is only possible to view the login and portal sections of AppsAnywhere in dark mode.

Each user can choose if the portal is displayed in dark or light mode by opening the theme menu, located at the top right of the portal.

The following options are available:
