Too Many Login Attempts

The website security component recognizes multiple failed logins as possible brute-force hacking attacks. Since we use Multi-Factor Authentication to protect login accounts, this issue will probably go away. However, just in case you are confounded by the "too many attempts" error message,  read this:

  • Web browsers retain certain links or auto-downloaded code, such as "cookie", sent by websites to user’s browsers.
    • One such "cookie" is the sessionID.
    • If a logged-in user quits the website without logging off, the browser retains and uses the expired sessionID when the user next attempts to login.
    • The website security component will not allow an expired session to be re-opened.
  • Avoid this issue by changing your browser settings to permanently remove all web cache and web history when you close your browser.
