Login cookies

Please don’t let users opt out of cookies they need for logging in. Hitting the “Trouble logging in?” button should not be expected in a normal registering and login flow, which it now is, if you don’t accept cookies before you’d known that they are necessary for logging in. I kept pressing the login button to no avail, a frustrating first impression.

I’m new here, so move this topic to where it should be if necessary.


FWIW the various privacy regulations that lead to cookie-acceptance popups always have an exemption for functional cookies (i.e. ones required for login) and it’s only things like analytic and other behavior-tracking cookies that are supposed to be suppressed by a cookie opt-out.
