Unable to login into my account

Steps to reproduce

  1. Go to settings
  2. Go to ‘Account’ tab
  3. I enter my correct username and password but I always get the error ‘Login failed, please double check your email and password’. I enter the exact same credentials on the Obsidian website and I login successful.

Expected result

Successful login into my Obsidian desktop client

Actual result

I get this error upon entering credentials - ‘Login failed, please double check your email and password’


  • Operating system: Windows 10 Pro v1909
  • Obsidian version: v0.9.1

Additional information

the credentials for the forum and app are different.
Can you login here http://obsidian.md

You’ve mentioned your version is 0.9.1, but what version of the installer do you have?


If you know your credentials are correct, and you are using a fairly old installer it might be worth trying to download the latest installer and see if it helps.

I’m moving this to graveyard until OP comes back confirm the bug still exists.
