When I am trying to login to Stack Overflow, I am frequently getting the following error:

Suspicious Login - Please try later.

Till I delete all the cookies and temp files I am not able to log in. Deleting the cookies deletes all my previous settings/preferences.

Is there any way to prevent it? And what is the reason for this error?

PS: Now I'm using a seperate browser, it happens only for Stack Overflow.

  • Is it limited to a specific browser? To a specific physical location? Or does it happen all the time, anywhere? – Bart Apr 30 '13 at 11:28

    In short it happens when your IP address is changing during the login process. – Shadow Wizard is Ear For You Apr 30 '13 at 11:29
  • I know this behavior from google when I was working in a big coworking space. to many user were using the primitively setup network. nearly for every network access everybody got a new ip address. – vikingosegundo Apr 30 '13 at 11:39
  • Not specific to the browser. – user220861 Apr 30 '13 at 11:42
