I could not log in from my Android phone today, being told that my password was wrong, despite the fact that

1) I am using the password saved by the browser
2) I have not changed the password.
3) The password is the same as that displayed in my account when I access Flickr from my computer using the same password.

Did you read the posts above yours in the thread, particularly the one from a staff member?
And have you done what the staff member asked you to do, and sent a message to the link provided by Viejito in the first reply?

Dear Nionyn

Yes I did read the posts above.
No I did not write to a staff member.
I do not intend to write to a staff member soon.

This issue has been continuing for a while.
I wanted to know if it is continuing.

I think I know what the staff member will say,
that I should change my password. But I don't
want to change my password.

I would like to know the current state of this issue
and if it is continuing, by it being highlighted in the
forums, it may be more likely that it is cured rather
than requiring that we submit support requests
and change our passwords.

Then it seems that you don't want to do what is most likely to help you.
In that case you're on your own.
Bye!

Dear Nionyn

I may be on my own, but perhaps there will be other users who feel like me who may comment on ways in which they have solved, or not solved this issue.

My solution for the time being is to upload photos only from my Windows computer which can log in using my password.

And even if I am on my own, I will at least have mentioned on the forums where it seems flickr personnel also participate which, as I mentioned before, is part of my objective for posting here.

Not only to help myself, but in the hope we are all helped by having this issue cured.

It is good of you to participate in this (user to user) forum. Perhaps you also read the forum regularly ... in which case you probably also know that whenever login issues come up, staff always chime in to ask people to contact staff directly about it.

No one has ever come back later to complain that staff forced them to change their password. Roll the dice; maybe you'll get lucky.

Staff will never ever deal with login issues in a public forum, because these problems will invariably involve sharing private information.

(For that matter, login "cures" are very rarely "one size fits all"...)

I don't want to change my password.
I have seen it happen that a phone app had more requirements of a password than a computer browser. I just changed my password to one that was accepted by both. Problem solved.

Unwillingness to change your password is not a problem, as long as you only want to access Flickr on your computer...

I did have this problem some months back, just on my laptop not on my phone. I left it 12 hours and the problem resolved itself, with no action on my part.

Rangers Collectables:

Do you use VPN software? I do on my work laptop- Pulse Secure, which also gives me login errors, and I use 1Password, so I know it was the right one.

I put my VPN connection on pause, and was able to log in.

EDIT: Oh, LOL, post was 3 weeks ago, but was bumped by back and forth about whether Ranger Collectables should post here or not.

NEVER CHANGE, FLICKR FORUM! NEVER CHANGE! 😂
