Login on iPad "canceled as a precaution against session hijacking"
Closed, InvalidPublic


I logged out of my Mediawiki account on my laptop, which also caused me to be logged out on my iPad. However, when I tried to log back in on my iPad, I keep getting the error message "There seems to be a problem with your login session; this action has been canceled as a precaution against session hijacking. Go back to the previous page, reload that page and then try again."

However, nothing I do allows me to log back into my account on the iPad. I've tried closing and reopening Safari, clearing all web data (including cookies), even requesting for a temporary password.

I should add that I don't have any problem logging into my account on my laptop.

I have been able to log into the English Wiktionary, but not the English Wikipedia or the Wikimedia Commons.

Hi, which Safari version is this about? Does that also happen when you use another browser on your iPad?

Sorry, how do I check the Safari version? This morning I managed to log into the English Wikipedia (on turning on the iPad after having turned it off overnight), but till now I cannot log into the Wikimedia Commons.

I tried using Firefox and didn't experience any problems. Thanks.

Sorry, I do not know as I don't use an iPad. I was after asking for potential data to allow others to try reproducing, but if logging in works on the same machine with a different browser I am afraid this has to do with that browser and its settings and there is nothing that could be fixed on the Wikimedia site... :-/ might be a good venue for such support requests.
