Problems logging into the outreach dashboard
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

Course: https://outreachdashboard.wmflabs.org/courses/Swansea_University/LAA319_-_Competition_Law
Institution: Swansea University
Course leader: User:Detig28

The course leader has told me that he's had problems logging into the dashboard. From Safari (10.1) he got the 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."

Using Google Chrome (57) the log in process seemed to work. I tried to replicate this with a colleague at the Wikimedia UK offices, but have been able to log into the dashboard from Safari.

Are there any known compatibility issues with certain browsers? Could there be other causes?

@Richard_Nevell_WMUK Did this error message appear on the dashboard site, or on Wikipedia? (I'm trying to pin down whether it's on the MediaWiki OAuth side of the code, or the dashboard side of the code.)

Not enough info to know whether this is a Dashboard issue or outside our control.
