Connectivity issues

In case your browser cannot access Swimm - there are a few possible reasons:

  1. VPN clients - if you are using a VPN client, try disabling it and then try logging into to Swimm.
  2. Firewalls - if you have control over the firewall, try disabling it and then try logging into Swimm.
  3. Browser extensions - various browser extensions may manipulate network communication. Use Incognito mode in Chrome. In Incognito mode, unless you specified otherwise in the past, all browser extensions are disabled by default. Then try logging into Swimm.
  4. Network limitation - try using a mobile hotspot with your computer. If you manage your login, this means that your Wifi network cannot access Swimm's backend.
  5. Spotty internet connection - if your network connection is not stable, your machine might fail to communicate with Swimm. Try another network, make sure it is reliable, and try again.
  6. Local configuration - your local machine may have some invalid configuration. Try using a different computer to login.

If the login is successful, you have successfully isolated the issue.

Please contact support if you need any assistance.
