I get a 403 when I trying to login to an account

Issue Summary

I updated to v6.6.0, and after that whenever I’am trying to login from app, I get a 403 says “THE PROVIDED AUTH TOKEN FOR THE REQUEST IS DIFFERENT FROM THE SESSION AUTH TOKEN.”
Odd thing is, I can login via website no problem. But App still says I need to login to my account.
I tried to open Local App. via account page. It still does not work as well…
Any suggestions?
Thank you.

Security Reminder

Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.

Same issue here with me. Please guys support us.

@sgp808 Is this still an issue for you?

@Saurav I will send you a DM to gather more info.

The same problem for over a month can not enter through the application local wp gives an error 403. If there is a solution to this problem, it would be good to publish

Hi @alextugin

I would run through all of the troubleshooting steps on the comment below. Usually, this is a browser/network issue.

I have read the entire forum, and tried all the solutions described, nothing helps. You have to login to use the live link option.

Hi @alextugin

If you’ve tried using different browsers, networks, VPNs, LTE Data, and machines and it’s still not working if you need to use the Live Links feature as an alternative you could spin up a free Demo Site with Flywheel Demo Site. You can push your site there to be able to share it with others or see how it would look when live.
