Unable to login into Ycombinator's HN. Login is valid

Description of the issue:

When I attempt to login to Hacker News (https://news.ycombinator.com), it redirects me to the main page, but I am not logged in.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

Attempt to login. That’s it. Repeated attempts yield the same result.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

I am not logged into HN.

Expected result:

Logged into HN.

Reproduces how often:

All the time.

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):

MacOS Big Sur 11.1

Version 1.19.86 Chromium: 88.0.4324.96 (Official Build) (x86_64)

Additional Information:

Just checked, seems to be okay here. I would check your user/pass details. Ensure there is no spaces etc.

Strange. I have no spaces in either my username or password, and I am able to login just fine with Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.

Just to elaborate, I hand entered my login instead of using autocomplete. I also tested this on mobile. The login works on Brave for iOS. Maybe that’s not surprising since it’s webkit on iOS

Nevermind. I cleared my cache and it’s fixed now
