Troubleshooting - Web Console

Because ESET PROTECT is hosted in the cloud, most of the errors that can occur during login can be solved by following these general troubleshooting steps:

Clear the browser cache and refresh the login page.

If the problem persists, wait a few minutes and try to log in again or try different browser (supported browsers).

If the problem is not resolved, contact ESET Support.

The table below will give you some insight into the most common Web Console login error massages and statuses, what they mean and some additional troubleshooting steps:

The ESET Status Portal displays the current status of ESET cloud services, scheduled outages and past incidents. If you are experiencing an issue with a supported ESET service and do not see it listed in the Status Portal, contact ESET Technical Support.

Monitoring teams verify potential issues internally, and confirmed incidents are posted and updated manually to maintain high credibility and accuracy. Therefore, they appear on the Status Portal with a slight delay. Incidents with a short duration may not be posted if they are resolved before being manually confirmed.
