Did you try to log into your Twitter account and suddenly you got an error message “oops something went wrong, please try again”?
Did you then get stuck on an endless loop of consent_violation_flow page?
A lot of Twitter users have experienced this problem lately. If you have been redirected to this consent_violation_flow page, there is a possibility that your Twitter account has been suspended or banned.
Another possibility is due to code errors or bugs in the Twitter server. if there is a bug in an application server such as Twitter, their programmers usually fix it as soon as possible.
Today we are here to help you fix the ‘Consent Violation Flow’ issue you are experiencing on Twitter and in this guide, we will show five different workarounds and possible solutions to getting it fixed.
Let’s dive right in.
Stuck on ‘Consent Violation Flow’ on Twitter? 5 Ways
1. Clear Your Browser Cache.
Before you do anything, you need to first take into account that the cache of the search browser you may be using could be the root of what’s causing your Twitter to hang up and remain stuck on the Consent Violation Flow loop.
Here’s what you do:
- First, you have to check what browser you are using. If you are using Google Chrome, type chrome://settings/clearBrowserData on your address bar to directly access browser cache settings. The settings are under the Advanced tab as shown below.
- Next, under Time Range choose All-time. This is because you want to clear everything from the beginning to ensure that none of your previous data is being the root of your problem. However before you hit the Clear data button, you have to make sure that ‘Browsing history’, ‘Cookies and other site data‘ and ‘Cached images and files‘ checkboxes are checked.
- Once you’ve made sure to check all the correct boxes (to be safe, you may check all of the boxes) you may proceed to click on the blue Clear data button and wait for it to finish clearing the data. It may take a few minutes so hang in there! 🙂
- Finally, close your Google Chrome browser and relaunch it. You may jump back onto Twitter and try to signing in to your account once again. See if you’re still being stuck on the ‘Consent Violation Flow’.
If you are not using Google Chrome, you can check out this guide on how to clear cache in the Firefox browser and this guide on how to clear cache in the Safari browser. Make sure you follow similar options and settings when clearing cache in other browsers similar to the steps stated above.
Still experiencing the same issue and none of the steps above didn’t do anything? Don’t worry. You may proceed to the next method.
2. Browse in Private Browsing Mode.
When you use private browsing or incognito mode on your web browser, the browser does not store or load any saved information (although this is often debated since some browsers like Google may still track you in Incognito even if this isn’t the case). Anyways, in the grand scheme of things, this means that if you ever visit a website in private mode, it will get all updated data from the website server itself and not from cached files in your computer or browser. Additionally, your search history is not saved either.
So try to log in to your Twitter account in private browsing or incognito mode. Here are the steps on how you can access Private Browsing (Incognito Mode) on Google Chrome, Firefox, and Safari search browsers:
If you’re on Google Chrome.
As stated by Google, here’s how you open Incognito mode on Google Chrome:
- Get onto your computer and then open (Google) Chrome.
- At the top right-hand corner, click the More button (three dots) and then choose to open in New Incognito Window.
- A new window pops up. On this page, you are now browsing in Incognito mode. How do you tell? In the top corner, check for the Incognito icon. This means you’re browsing in Incognito mode (or otherwise known as private browsing mode.
- Once you are browsing in Incognito mode, you can retry once again to access your Twitter account that was stuck on the ‘Consent Violation Flow’ error. Try it and see if it works.
Tip: Keyboard Shortcut for Incognito 💡
You can also use a keyboard shortcut to open an Incognito window at any time:
• Windows, Linux, or Chrome OS: Press Ctrl + Shift + n.
• Mac: Press ⌘ + Shift + n.
If you’re on Firefox.
As stated by Mozilla, here’s how you open Incognito mode on Mozilla Firefox:
- Click the Menu button (three lines) and then choose to open New Private Window.
- The Private Browsing home page will open in a new window, you can retry once again to access your Twitter account that was stuck on the ‘Consent Violation Flow’ error. Try it and see if it works.

Right-click on any link and choose Open Link in New Private Window from the context menu.
If you’re on Safari.
As stated by Apple, here’s how you open Incognito mode on Safari:

Tip: Keyboard Shortcut for a new private window on Mac 💡

3. Check Your Account Status.
If your Twitter account got suspended, then that could also cause the Consent Violation Flow error page to pop up.
As stated on Twitter, there are 3 ways to go about unsuspending your account. Check below for the reasons why your account was suspended and how to reactivate it:
- If your Twitter account is unverified, then it can be tagged as fake or spam. In order to unsuspend it, you will be asked to verify your account. Upon login, you will be asked to provide your phone number or confirm your email address. Follow the on-screen instructions to reactivate your account by providing the necessary information that Twitter requires.
- If Twitter detects suspicious behavior on your account, then Twitter will lock your account for security purposes. It’s as straightforward as that. In order to unlock your account, you will be asked to follow a set of instructions sent into your email address associated with your account. If it is not in your email’s Inbox, as well as keep a close eye on your Spam, Junk, and Social folders. To avoid Twitter repeatedly flagging you for suspicious behavior in the future, you may have a read through Twitter’s guide on how to keep your account secure.
- If you are still unable to unsuspend your account, you can file an appeal. In order to do that, you must log in to your suspended account. Then, open a new tab and file an appeal here.
So try one of the above ways to get your account (if suspended) back and then try logging in to Twitter once again. For most of our users this was one of the methods that had worked for them as well.
4. Check if Twitter Is Under Maintenance.
Website servers occasionally go down due to maintenance for bug fixes and system upgrades. The same goes for Twitter.
Technically when the server is down, an error message like ‘oops something went wrong, please try again‘ or ‘Something is technically wrong‘ are two of the most likely to appear if you try to log in.
If this happens, simply just remain patient and wait for a few hours until it is done. You can double-check if this is the case by checking a site like Downdetector to see is down for maintenance for everyone around the world or within your region.
Once the maintenance is complete from Twitter’s end, you won’t have to deal with the Consent Violation Flow loop issue anymore. Although this is a rare case.
5. If All Else Fails, Contact Twitter Support.
If you tried all of the above methods but you still find that you are stuck on the Consent Flow Violation error, then jump into the Twitter Contact Help page that I have linked out here for you and then click on the I need login and account support.
Next, click on the I can’t log in to my account option. Lastly provide your Twitter username and hopefully, Twitter will get back to you.
