Check the security level or try another browser
Open this link https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/viewMyClient.html. Here you can test and see whether your browser supports the correct security protocols. In the table on the website, TLS 1.1, 1.2 or 1.3 must be marked with a 'YES'.
If you see a 'NO', please try the same security test using a different browser than you are currently using. Such as Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Opera, or Chrome.
If you see a 'YES', but still have problems logging in, try one of the following tips:
- Check the time and date of your device and make sure it is correct. If the date and time on your device do not correspond with the real date and time, you could get messages relating to privacy / security errors.
- Restart your (WiFi) modem and / or router by disconnecting it from the power supply for a few minutes and then reconnecting it.
- Try logging in using an 'Incognito' / 'Privacy' tab in your browser. Most plug-ins in your browser will be temporarily disabled.
- Empty the cache memory of your browser.
- If possible, try logging in on another device.
- Scan your device using antivirus software.
- Check if you are using a secure WiFi connection.
- If all else fails, try logging in later.
