I've had that issue using express vpn.
Disabling vpn then logging in works.
Once logged in on app vpn can be enabled.

On a related issue,
A couple of banking apps I use will not let me sign in un less I select a different country in express vpn.
Simply disabling the vpn didn't fix the signin issue.

Thanks
Using Blokada here (and always have with no XDA login issues) with no other VPN

Tried disabling Blokada completely
Adding XDA as an exception

Still not able to login

Logged out from the XDA web completely
Cleaned the XDA app cache
Reinstalled the XDA app

Still not working

Super weird! Any ideas as to what to try next?

Hey guys
The app mysteriously started working just fine with my login today...no changes made to my setup.
Not complaining here... Fingers crossed that it keeps going!
Cheers!

Sorry guys, bit of a rant ahead regarding recent developments.

Quote:

We'll be opening up github shortly! Beware that every time somebody asks we build the wall 10 feet higher though.

I can't help but look at this line and feel that XDA has been quite hypocritical here. XDA prides itself on hosting custom ROM development communities, and repeatedly calls out companies which don't release kernel sources for their devices on time. The 'name and shame' technique.

Yet you guys promised to open source your OWN app and didn't do so for FIVE WHOLE YEARS. What was the point? Why not just say it was closed source and be done with it? Why mislead users into thinking the app was going to be open sourced "shortly", for an increasingly ludicrous definition of "shortly"?

And now this app is being abandoned for what looks to be half a year, to be replaced by yet another proprietary app.

I refuse to use the new app. I will be uninstalling XDA Labs in 10 days and will use my browser to access the website instead.

Thank you, and again, sorry for the rant.

@Setialpha I recommend you remove XDA Labs from the list of FOSS apps installed using NanoDroid. It will stop working in 10 days, and was never FOSS to begin with, anyway.

What started as a reasonable (albeit ranty) observation quickly devolved into personal retribution

How? Everything they're saying is true. It's not personal from my perspective. Why discredit an honest review? Smh
