Cannot enter password protected page (Wordpress), Fallback to enter password - ! SOLVED!

Description of the issue:
I am trying to access a password protected page. This page is provided by my wordpress instance. When I open the URL, the password form is shown and I enter the correct password. After pressing the blue submit button, the page is not displayed and I am falling back to this page with an emptied password form.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Open the URL:
    • the page shows some header data and the password form
  2. Enter the password as “Test1234” without quotes
  3. press the blue submit button (reading “Absenden”)

Expected result:
The remaining page content is displayed:

  • look for “Hello Visitor”

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.5.115 Chromium: 80.0.3987.149 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
I tried with different site settings and switching off the shield. In all cases the page was not displayed.

Thanks for looking into this

I was able to log in using the test password you provided without any issue:

Can you try clearing cache/site data for the site and then see if you’re able to login?


Hello Mattches,

this was an incredible hint!
Under the caching settings are three items that can be selected.
I tend to clear option one and three, the “browsing history” and the “documents/images”. This did not help.

So I also cleared the “Cookies and other website data” (middle option), which resolved the issue. :grinning:

Downside: all my cookies and website data are now cleared :neutral_face: - I have to enter all my data again on all sites, but I am happy to have this resolved. :wink: (Just wonder why this happens after a while again :thinking: )

Thank you very much!
