Hey @callehaya ! Welcome to the community :slight_smile:

Have you tried to see if you can log in using another browser? I want to confirm the issue is Brave browser specific.

Thank you,


Yes I have no problem logging in with google chrome

Hey. just an idea. I don’t have a login to test… but,.

Can you add @@||tags.tiqcdn.com^$script,domain=barclays.co.uk into brave://adblock does it help?

I have tried this and it did not work. It seems that Barclays does not like Brave as I do not have any trouble logging in with any other browser. The other problem is that you cannot contact Brave to discuss the problem

Does disabling ads & trackers help in shields help @callehaya

I have tried that and still get the message “bad request”

I give up as nobody has the answer and I shall have to go back to using google chrome as my trusted browser, A great pity that the developers do not provide direct access with problems and rely on a community to do their work for them

Debugging bank accounts isn’t something that can be done, since there is a lot of privacy issues that come with it.

Looking at the standard “bad request”, Clearing cookies and cache via brave://settings/clearBrowserData would be a start.

Clearing browser data appears to have solved the problem
