Do you verify that Report Server authentication settings allow a wide range of web browsers?
  v3.0 Posted at 17/11/2017 4:22 PM by Greg Harris
​​​​The default configuration for Report Server isn't accessible​ by most mobile browsers and some desktop browsers too. You can adjust the authentication types allowed to increase the range.

​The configuration file for the Report Server is named RSReportServer.config and the default location is C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSRS13.MSSQLSERVER\Reporting Services\ReportServer\

You should make a backup of the configuration before editing it so you can rollback if you make a mistake.

We normally change the AuthenticationTypes node from:

                            <RSWindowsNegotiate /> 
                            <RSWindowsNegotiate /> 
                            <RSWindowsKerberos /> 
                            <RSWindowsNTLM /> 

Check out the different Authentication Types in the Report Server documentation ​ and select the types that suit your needs.
