Stuck with "Manual Security Refresh"

You receive a dropdown to "Continue session" or "Start new session", but they don't seem to work. If are able to continue in a different browser; then you might need to clear your cookies for DFRNT.com.

Rarely, cookie values become invalid. Normally you get a popup to help you refresh your browser session to get on with your work, and you either get a new session started, or refresh the full browser window. If you are stuck, you might need to remove the cookies manually unfortunately.

If you don't manage to resolve your issue, send a support request to support@dfrnt.com.

This works in similar ways across browsers, do clean them for dfrnt.com and for identity.dfrnt.com. This is a known issue, and we are working on a fix.

How to clean cookies for dfrnt.com in Microsoft Edge:

  1. Go to Edge/Chrome/Safari settings (the exact location is in different places across browsers)
  2. Cookies and Site Permissions
  3. Manage and delete cookies and site data
  4. See all cookies and site data
  5. Search for "dfrnt.com"
  6. Delete for all dfrnt.com (should have dfrnt.com and identity.dfrnt.com in there)
  7. Login to dfrnt.com again and you should be able to login.

If you have a popup blocker, you might want to disable it, or keep an eye out for it as DFRNT might want to open an extra window to refresh your session information. The reason is to prevent any work getting lost during cookie and identity refreshes.

This is rare, please notify us if you get stuck so we can take a look at it and if needed put in place a better solution!
