I was unable to connect to Chat, but finally it worked. Then I got disconnected/logged out of chat, and now I am unable to log in to chat. I closed the browser and re-opened after clearing out all cookies and cache. I logged into Stack Exchange first. I logged into Stack Overflow first. It is still not allowing me to log in to chat.stackoverflow.com. What is wrong?

I have also disabled all browser addons and plugins. The same thing happens on any browser.


I was able to log in though Stack Overflow, click the chat link, and create a new chat room.

See if you can use the chat room I created by clicking the direct link. Usually, the site is pretty good about logging you in automatically.

If you still can't, there might be a issue with the browser not wanting to log you in when coming from Stack Overflow. Did you try the log in link on the chat page at the top? Did you try another browser? Reboot? Another Computer?

  • Thanks, I tried all the things you mentioned, but it's still not working. – TechDude Aug 29 '14 at 20:44
  • @TechDude Even on a new computer? You have met the rep requirement of only 20 rep. I'm not sure what to tell you. It seems specific to your account, as I was able to log in. – fredsbend Aug 29 '14 at 20:48
  • Yes, even on a new computer. I don't know what it is. I had been having trouble logging in to begin with, but then I logged in to chat for about 15 minutes only for it to stop working again. Strange. – TechDude Aug 29 '14 at 20:51
