The portal bounces on to state "We're sorry, your attempt to log in was blocked. If you denied the request by accident, try logging in again."   It flashes up (for milli-secs - I had to film it and pause the pic) a notification that it is sending an email to the registered email address for verification, but nothing arrives (and yes, have checked Junk...)    It coincides with an advice on the app stating that my first years membership has lapsed - but without being able to log on - I'm stuck !  All a bit disappointing really.  Any suggestions ?

I contacted the support desk and raised a ticket.  In fact, by request, I took time to take screen shots, open Google analytic traces, logs from 3 separate browsers and sent them via an agreed file drop portal.  1 week on, I received an email advising that the matter was closed due to 'inactivity' !  And of course, I can't reply to the email as it's a 'no-reply address' but instead am expected to find more time out of my day to raise yet another ticket !   Really disappointing support.

Hello, I am curious, did you ever get this issue fixed? I am having the same issue.

Definitely not had a resolution.  The guy in Europe seemed quite knowledgeable about the issue and said it was an Apple / Mac thing. It's all around dual factor authentication and there was a short window until the end of Sept which enabled them to allow me access by switching it off via the mobile app (so I could pay them my annual subscription - nice !), however after that the authentication rule became mandatory.  Unfortunately they hadn't adequately tested all of the platforms which support their software and now needed to resolve.   I was asked to take a variety of coding logs and screen scrapes to assist in him 'building a case' for resolution, which I did (the same day and he acknowledged).  But after a a week, they just closed it due to 'inactivity' and suggested I raise a new ticket if I wanted anyone to start looking at it again !  Certainly not what you'd call good Customer Service.
