Thanks! I’ll remember the password thing if it happens again!
That's really not what causes it. It's the "Remember-Me Authentication" and "Remember Me Login Keys" in your User Control Panel.
I don’t know what caused it but I know how I got back on. I don’t use remember me. All I know is that I would type my password in and it would say that it was wrong. It’s been doing that for awhile now. I know for a fact that it was right but it would tell me it was wrong. After trying a few times it kicked me out and said I would have to get recaptcha verified too. Unfortunately it would keep saying that it couldn’t connect to recaptcha and that I should check my connection and try again. I tried on several devices but it wouldn’t work. Requesting a password change was the only thing that worked for me.
I have been having the exact same problem when I try to log in with my mobile. Go up and look at your USER CONTROL PANEL, then click on PROFILE, then click Manage “Remember Me” login keys

I have at least 20 different IP addresses showing up in there!

Then I checked this out on the phpbb boards and found some interesting info.

I also bypassed the captcha and also changed my password and that still doesn't help. I just have to keep trying and it usually will let me stay on with the mobile for around 5 minutes then automatically logs me out. VERY annoying to say the least!

Apparently, it's a cookie overload problem. I had it a couple of weeks ago. I was advised to try and clear cookies for this site, and start again.

It's seemed to have worked for me.

I think VPNs may be the problem - maybe.

I tried that too and it didn’t work for me.

The "solution" (and yes I'm aware it's a ballache) is to click the "Forgotten password" link and go through the password reset process. I have no idea what has happened or why but this seems to resolve the issue and refresh the password hashes.
This is what worked for me. Unfortunately I had to figure it out myself and it took me a day to say fuck it, I’m going to reset my password.

What is going on with this board? I got logged out while on my phone and now no matter what I do, I can't get logged back in. I am not liking the idea of having to change my password every time I log in with the phone. Help!!!!

And I am not the only one!
