How to troubleshoot 'You are not authorised'


If you encounter the message 'You are not authorised', it's likely due to a discrepancy between your device's time and our server's time. This can happen for various reasons, such as manual time adjustments or disabled automatic time syncing.



Here's how to fix it in two easy steps:         

Step 1: sync your device's time

  • For Windows:  Right-click the clock in your taskbar and select 'Adjust date/time'. Turn on 'Set time automatically' and click 'Sync now'. 

  • For MacOS: Click the Apple menu, choose 'System Preferences', then 'Date & Time'. Check 'Set date and time automatically'.

Step 2: restart your web browser

After adjusting the time settings, close and reopen your web browser to ensure the changes take effect.

Additional tips

  • Make sure your internet connection is stable
  • If you're using a firewall, ensure it's not blocking Workpaper
  • Clear your web browser's cache and cookies.
