Is Norton Security Blocking Access to Word Press?

I am part of an organization that has a website that uses Word Press, and manages an online database that we log into via our website with the addition of "wp-login/php" Others have no trouble logging in to the system from a variety of different computers. I seem to be the only one using Norton Security. Every time I try to log in, I get an error message from WordPress that says I must enable cookies on my browser, even though cookies are already enabled. This message occurs no matter which browser I use: Chrome, IE, the new Windows 10 browser or Mozilla Firefox all generate the same message. Sometimes, if I disable my firewall and anti-virus, I can get in. Sometimes, using Chrome in incognito mode and disabling the firewall and anti-virus works. Sometimes it doesn't. Does anyone have any idea what's going on here? It's driving me crazy.

Hello Donajean Vitale

What is the website that you are trying to get into? Let me try to enter the site and then we can tell if Norton is blocking it. Please post a screenshot of the error message that you are receiving. If there is a blockage, you can submit it to the False Positive Team and I can also have the site retested to see if it is clean. I can give you the details on how to do this after I try to get into the website.


Success always occurs in private and failure in full view. Windows 10 Pro 64 bit Norton Core Security Plus Core Firmware 282 I E 11 Chrome latest version.
