Try a Different Browser

It is always a smart idea to have more than one browser downloaded onto your device, just in case. This is because different resources may work differently in different browsers, and login errors can get saved in your cache even if they are just temporary. Many of the most common login errors can be resolved by simply trying a different browser (or even trying an incognito window on Chrome!).  If you cannot use a different browser, try clearing your cache and search history. 

What is a 404 Error?

How to solve 404 error

The typical trigger for an error 404 message is when website content has been removed or moved to another URL. There are also other reasons why an error message could appear. These include:

  • The URL or its content (such as files or images) was either deleted or moved (without adjusting any internal links accordingly)
  • The URL was written incorrectly (during the creation process or a redesign), linked incorrectly, or typed into the browser incorrectly
  • The server responsible for the website is not running or the connection is broken
  • The entered domain name doesn’t exist (anymore)
