Mobile client does not adhere to max length limit for text input



Mobile client does not adhere to maximum length limit for text input fields. As an application developer, you have set a maximum length of 25 characters for your "First Name" input field, but the field will accept more than 25 characters when the application is used on a mobile device. The issue affects both Android and IOS mobile devices.
