Sometimes while trying to log in to your Todoist account, you come across CSRF Token Error. When this happens you are not able to login to your profile. This can happen due to two primary reasons. First, the browser you use is not able to create a secure cookie. Secondly, it is not able to access the cookie to authorize your login. Hence, you see the error message of CSRF token missing or invalid.
There can be other reasons as well such as an ad-blocking plugin or script blocker. If you are running any such extensions on your browser, then maybe you will experience this error while trying to login into your Todoist account. In this guide, I have put up some troubleshoot mechanisms that will allow you to fix the CSRF Token Error on all major web browsers.
