Problems with Logging into Chit Chat (Web)


Not everyone will be able to sign on straight away in the manner discussed above.

If you encounter problems, chances are, it's because your security settings are high.

Not to worry, we can identify the issues and resolve them!

Common Problem 1 - US Access 

Why is US access required to access your Facebook account? Due to the way in which Facebook handles connection data, we are required to run the access key request through our server through a proxy.   

In short, if you "agree" ("This is Okay") you won't have this problem again.

US Facebook Login Proxy Issue

Feel free to contact us at support@athenait.net if you require more information.

Common Problem 2 - Name New Device

Over recent years Facebook has tried to make Facebook access much more strict. As such, if you have "Login Notifications" enabled in your account settings, you'll see a screen like this when trying to login. The solution is to name the device by typing a device name, and then pressing "Save Device." This would normally appear before step 3.
