If you're experiencing an error while logging in with a password, here are several simple steps you can take to resolve it:

  • Make sure the password you're using to log in is correct. Reset the password if you don't remember.
  • See if you're experiencing the same behavior in another browser or incognito mode. If not, try clearing your browser's cookies and cache.
  • Check that your browser version is up to date. If it isn't, please update the browser and retry your login. You may need to restart your laptop after updating the browser to ensure the changes to the browser happen. Try to log in again after restarting.

How do I fix a problem with logging in by SSO?

A common SSO login error that you may come across is a 500 internal server error. Usually this means there is something wrong with your SAML certificate and as such, all of your users in your organization will be affected. Here are some troubleshooting steps for this error:

  1. To resolve this 500 error issue, you will need access to your Amplitude platform. If you need to disable SSO login so you can resolve these errors, please reach out to the Support team. 
  2. Check in with your IT team to see if the SAML certificate has expired. If it has, then uploading a new SAML certificate should resolve this issue.
  3. Check that the format of the SAML certificate is correct. If it is incorrect, then have one of your Amplitude Admins upload a correctly formatted SAML to resolve this issue.

If you have configured SSO via Google Suite, another possible SSO login error that you might run into is the “403 Error: app_not_enabled_for_user” or “403 Error: app_not_configured_for_user”:
