Multi-factor or 2 Step Verification Issues

If you can't get into your account due to 2-step verification/authentication issues, we can reset this process for you. On your next login you'll receive a new QR code to save, which you will need to scan with an Authenticator App (Not a QR code scanner or your phone camera).
WARNING - A single user login can only be linked to a single device at a time. If we reset this, it will reset the link to any existing scans or Recovery Codes for this login. If you need access, please request the one-time code (OTC, 6-digit code) from the user that scanned the QR code originally.
Alternatively, you can select 'Trouble Scanning' and choose other methods to generate your 2-Step Verification code. We can send out your code to your email address if you would prefer, or if you have saved your recovery code, entering that will allow you access to your account.
If you'd like us to send out your code, please confirm your email with our support team and we'll reset your login connection to a mobile device.
Infinite Loading Screen
If you are having trouble getting Buildxact to load, your stored web browser information may be the cause.
As a first step, visit app.buildxact.com/logout to get a fresh login to Buildxact.
If the issue persists, try opening up the program with a different web browser. For example, if you are working on Safari try using Chrome.
Alternatively, you can open up the program in a private/incognito browser.
If either of these methods succeed in loading the program, we'll then need to clear out the cache on your main browser to get it back to working. See the following guides for how this is done.
I'm getting the message "Blocked by Firewall"
There are two likely reasons you are getting this error message.
1. Some browser extensions or desktop antivirus/security applications will limit network traffic to monitor what is coming and going into your computer. You can keep these active on your computer, but you'll need to flag our sites to bypass their network restrictions.
If you have a managed IT network, please forward the following guide to your IT team. Otherwise, feel free to add the URLs in the guide below as exclusions to your security/antivirus system's whitelist feature.
2. Some saved data in your browser could be causing an issue during the login process. Following the steps below can help resolve those issues.
First, visit app.buildxact.com/logout to get a fresh login to the system. If you are using a bookmark to login, doing this will clear out any legacy data and should allow you back into the system.
If the issue persists, try opening up the program with a different web browser. For example, if you are working on Safari give Chrome a try.
Alternatively, if you open up the program in a private/incognito browser it should have the same result.
If either of these methods load up the program, we'll need to clear out the cache on your main browser to get it back to working.
