Whats up w/ Vanguards website?

Post by F150HD »

Disappearing and shifting menus, no 'logoff' button (appears and disappears etc)

Am I the only one having this issue? Just logged in 10 mins ago.

Also, use the scrollbar.
Call Vanguard and tell them to unplug their modem, wait 30 seconds, and plug it back in.

same thing that kept happening to the menus on their site. It was like someone was learning to code by adding/removing code snippets and items would disappear and reappear.

I logged into Vanguard today using 2 factor authentication. They kept texting the code about 45 times! Very strange.

I do wish the new CEO at Vanguard would emphasize improved customer service and modernization of technology over trying to squeeze the last basis point of expense ratio out of their index funds. Cheapness may be a virtue but it shouldn’t be an overriding obsession.

Search for any Vanguard etf that is not VEU. Works.
Now search for VEU, or even click on the link from the VFWAX page. Does not work.

The search works for me on Investor site and not logged in. But the ETF link on the VFWAX page does not.

The link on the Vangaurd ETF list also does not work.

Weird.

Still having issues after this most recent outage/incident. The headers and many other elements don't render making the site basically unusable. I work in technology and it appears there is a CORS issue.

One of the great things about simplicity is you spend almost no time accessing financial websites, so you almost never encounter these issues. Even when you do, it's a non-issue because you are not obsessed with having to log in right now.
