Encountering a 403/Forbidden error or blank page?

Encountering a 403/Forbidden error or blank page when trying to access the ads eval system is nearly always caused by logging into multiple Google accounts simultaneously.

The EWOQ system does not support being logged into any Google account other than the address you use to rate tasks. You could encounter a 403 error even if you had logged into another Google account but then closed that window or tab.

Please follow the following steps as they guarantee you will be logged out of all other Google accounts:

Click on this link to log into the ads evaluation system:
You will be prompted to log in. Please enter the Gmail address you were provided to access the ads rating system along with your password.
You should be redirected to the ads evaluation system’s Rater Hub page.

If this doesn’t work, we find that most Ads Evaluators can fix this problem by clearing their browser cache or trying a different browser either Chrome/Firefox.
