There are 3 possible causes for this: :

  • You may have exited the Prescrire website without ending your session by clicking on "Log out", for example by closing the window of your web browser.
    The session will disconnect automatically 20 minutes after your last action online. You will then be able to open another session.
    Tip: Remember to always use the "Log out" function, via the link located at the top right-hand corner of each page of the website, before closing the window of your web browser, in order to avoid this delay in the future.
  • You changed your browser settings or changed browsers after a login failure. You will need to wait 20 minutes from the first login failure before trying again. 
• Browser settings for the Prescrire website
  • To be able to log into the Prescrire website and to access subscriber-only content, your browser settings must be set to allow "cookies" from websites visited.
