Experiencing challenges while attempting to log in to your account? Worry not; we're here to lend a helping hand. Login issues can arise for various reasons, such as inaccurate username or password inputs. In some rare instances, it might also be due to your firewall obstructing access.

Before we delve into troubleshooting, remember that unless your email address was set as your username, you cannot log in or reset your password using your email address. If you're uncertain about your password, follow these steps to reset it:

Resetting Your Password

To reset your password:

  1. Click on "Forgot Your Password?"

  2. Enter your username

  3. Click on "Request Reset" and email will be sent to you to reset your password

If you do not see the email show up within 1 minute or so, please check your spam or junk folders.

Additional Tips

  • Double-Check Username: Ensure you are using the correct username. Please bear in mind that unless your email address was designated as your username, logging in using your email address is not possible.

  • Caps Lock: Passwords are case-sensitive, so double-check whether your Caps Lock key is on or off when entering your password.

  • Browser Autofill: Sometimes, your browser may autofill old or incorrect passwords. Manually type in your new password to avoid this.

  • Password Managers: If you use a password manager, make sure it's not auto-filling incorrect credentials.

  • Consider Manual Entry for Passwords Instead of Copy-Paste: If you are copy and pasting the password into the browser, you may want to try manually entering it instead to ensure accuracy and avoid any autofill issues

  • Clear Browser Cache: Clear your browser's cache and cookies to eliminate any stored login data that might be causing issues.

  • Contact Support: If you continue to encounter problems after following these steps, please contact our support team for further assistance. They can help you resolve more complex account-related issues.
