Can't login to Jira (free version)


For some reason I can't login to my free Jira. I can login from mobile app, and everything worked fine last week. But from yesterday (or maybe earlier, I haven't checked since last Friday or Thursday) I cannot login. It continues to show me the error 

We couldn’t log you in

You may run into this issue when you use specific browsers or add-ons that hide the referer header for and other Atlassian sites. Check for these and then try logging in again.

And button 'Try login again' which results in the same error.  

Does anyone know what can be the issue and how to resolve it? Working from phone is not so nice. 

Same for our free Confluence.

Update - I was able to login in incognito window. But this is strange behavior anyway.

That leads to the assumption that it is somehow related to the browser (Chrome/Firefox) as in Incognito mode the browser behaves (at least in many areas) differently to the normal mode.

If deleting Cookies and Cache (what is mostly the standard procedure) does not help you could consider digging deeper into what might be causing trouble in the browser, or, as a last resort, reset the browser. Normally, after that things go how they should :)

Thank you, Daniel! This worked

Hi! I'm facing the exact same issue. I'm using the Brave browser v1.16.72 (based on Chromium 86.0.4240.183). Last week I could log in; since yesterday I couldn't do it any longer.

I tried also in incognito/private view: can't do it.

Also, I deleted all the cache/cookies, etc: can't do it.

Funny thing is I can log in with Firefox 82.0.3.

I'm using Ubuntu 20.04.

Any hints?

For brave browser the underlying cause is most times different.
