What does it mean?

You may see this message for a couple of reasons. If you are using an outdated or older version of your browser this could be the cause. However, it is typically generated as a security precaution. The security measures we've enabled automatically block certain content from being posted to prevent any harm to the software and/or information contained in your padlet.

How do you fix it?

Always ensure you are using the most up-to-date version of your browser to optimize Padlet's performance. You can follow these steps to troubleshoot this error message:

  1. Which browser are you using? Is it the most recent version? If not - download and install the most updated version. If yes - move to step 2.
  2. Try opening the padlet in an incognito/private window to see if this makes any difference.

How to open in incognito window

Using a PC

If opening in an incognito/private window helps - this means you may have an issue related to your cache and cookies. Try clearing the cache and cookies on your device and see if this fixes the issue. If not - go to step 3.

  1. Submit a Log Rocket for review. Go to the padlet you're experiencing this on and add ?log=1 to the end of the URL in the address bar. Make sure any ad blockers are turned OFF and you've disabled any 'do not track' settings. It is also recommended that you use a Chrome browser to do this.

When you perform these steps you enable a log just for this specific page.

By enabling the log, you agree that Padlet will receive a recording of the actions that you take on this specific padlet for troubleshooting the issue. The recording will only be used for this purpose and will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required.

Let us know by contacting Padlet support once this has been completed and we will alert the engineers to check the results. Be sure to include the URL of the padlet, a short summary of the problem and let us know you've recorded a log that's ready for review.
