Forum Login Issue


#1

When I initially open TBB in Whonix I see the Whonix placeholder screen with links to amongst other places this forum. When click on the forum link, it takes me to the version 3 type hidden service link for the forum. When I click on the Login button, after filling out my username and password upon hitting enter, I am taken to the standard (not the hidden service) forum web page and I am not shown as being logged in yet. However, if I close that tab in TBB and go back and again click on Forum on that placeholder page, I am taken to the version 3 type hidden service for the forum and it then shows I am logged in.

Is this what is meant by two factor authentication? I joke. The login issue happen all the time though for me.

Hi glass

That is a known issue that redirects back to Whonix.org from Whonix.onion during login. This is an upstream issue. Meaning there is nothing whonix developers can do about it.

The login issue has happened with me as well as I have tried to log in to the forum through my iPad in the Safari browser, but that did not happen. It said that login couldn’t be possible. I have also contacted iPad support for this.

Could you please be more specific? I not sure that this is the same issue. Steps to reproduce?

Note: If this is a hardware issue your vendor should be able to help. Meaning not an Whonix issue.
