I cannot login to freecode camp. I keep getting “oops something went wrong”


Bugs should always be reported as GitHub Issues. Whenever reporting a bug, please check first that there isn’t already an issue for it and provide as much detail as possible.

Here are some troubleshooting tips. (Like all troubleshooting tips they may or may not work depending on your situation.)

  • Try clearing all FCC values from you browser’s local storage and then logging in again.
  • Make sure that you don’t have a browser setting or extension that prevents cookies, scripts from running, etc.
  • If you see an “Oops” message after entering the code emailed to you, try going to freecodecamp.org/settings. It may be that you’re actually successfully logged in, but a broken link is trying to take you to a page that doesn’t exist. If so, you should be able to go to learn.freecodecamp.org and proceed normally.
  • Make sure you are using the latest version of Chrome or Firefox. Do not use IE, Edge, or Safari


how do I clear the FCC values? I can access FCC from my phone and other computers. I cannot access it from my own computer.



I went to do that and I discovered a script error.


Aaaaaah. Is this just happening in Edge, by any chance ? Edge/IE and Safari have decided not to implement new features of JS and CSS according to web standards and as a result they often exhibit unintended (and frustrating) behavior.


It’s happening in Chrome and Firefox


this is what I am looking at on google:


I enter email and this appears in console:


again, when I enter code provided in email:

I have already submitted a ticket in GitHub.


Some sort of rxjs issue. I would expect that to be an extension or browser incompatibility issue but if you’re experiencing it with multiple browsers, I’m flummoxed.


Good news: fixed the issue
Bad news: had to reset windows to do it

Thank you for your help


I sorry to hear that it took such drastic measures, but I’m glad you can move forward now. Happy coding!
