can't logon to vanguard account [Website Down]

Post by chipperd » Fri Mar 24, 2017 4:23 am

Hello all,
Wondering if anyone else can't logon to their vanguard account? Maybe b/c it's fairly early (5:20am eastern) and they are performing maint?
Thanks

Vanguard's website is down (for me anyway)

Post by SpringMan » Fri Mar 24, 2017 4:36 am

Strange behavior this morning on Vanguard. Logged in but can't display balances or even logoff. Reminds me of the Eagles song Hotel California. Hope this is not a sign of things to come.

By the way, the time stamp on the main Bogleheads board is off by 1 hour, not on daylight saving time. When post is opened the time stamp inside is correct.
Best Wishes, SpringMan

Maybe they got overloaded with everyone trying to login this morning to check their quarterly total stock/total international dividends.

Traceroute to personal.vanguard.com drops into the Twilight Zone somewhere after "unknown.prolexic.com".

Personally, having been in this situation in my workplace, I'd just as soon they concentrate on fixing the problem rather than answering the phone. (It would be nice, though for someone to put something on the landing page indicating an outage.)

I was able to get in. It took about a minute of loading and I continued onto other website with different tabs.

Balances and overview appeared complete.

Log-off took about 20 seconds.

Seems like some down servers?

Just a note -- in the United States, Eastern Time (ET) is at this writing in Eastern Daylight Time, so the abbreviation is properly EDT.

It is now 6:58 a.m. EDT.

I can log in just fine, and the balances and holdings are correct, including last night's dividend reinvestments. But the account history is still down, with an error message in its place: "Data are temporarily unavailable. Please try again later."

Messaging function on the website may be down as well. Newly submitted messages should appear under the Sent menu. Currently not visible, or not processing.

You have to set your time zone in the User Control Panel for daylight savings time to take effect. There was a change to the forum software a few years ago that necessitated resetting your time zone for DST to work automatically. So just go into your board preferences page and set your time zone again.

Is Vanguard Website Down

I haven been trying to log on this morning in the Kansas City area and get a 404 error once I enter my username/password.

Yeah, something is wrong.

First try just now, got a weird never before seen message:

This personal.vanguard.com page can’t be found

No webpage was found for the web address: https://personal.vanguard.com/my-accoun ... -overview/
HTTP ERROR 404


Never saw that specific wording before.
And the "404" message was tiny.

Still getting that same message after entering ID and password.

RM

EDIT TO ADD: Tried again using Chrome Incognito, and got in fine.
But still cannot get in using regular Chrome browser.
Odd.

I experienced the same thing this morning but it only affected the Accounts Overview page, https://personal.vanguard.com/my-accoun ... -overview/.

If you enter another URL directly it works. For example: https://personal.vanguard.com/us/myacco ... esholdings

Interesting.

Yup, that worked!

Thanks.

Any ideas why that first "overview" page would work in Chrome Incognito, but not regular Chrome?

Mac and Firefox here (outdated, because I'm still using an older OS):

The login takes me to the accounts page, and that doesn't display. No error message, just a white screen.

But the Balances and Holdings page works, at least for me. I got there through my browser history, but try this:

https://personal.vanguard.com/us/myacco ... esholdings

edit to add: I just realized that Conch posted that link. :beer

It does seem to be the "my-accounts" part that's currently a dud.

I just tested Incognito mode and confirmed it works. No idea why. My version of Chrome was recently updated (59.0.3071.109) so perhaps Google either "enhanced" security or introduced a bug. I tested Firefox v54 and IE 11 and both work as expected.

I had the same issue. Clearing cookies fixed it for me.

Either you can clear all your cookies, or delete cookies for the Vanguard website. Here's how to delete Vanguard website cookies in Chrome:
1. Goto settings
2. Search for "cookies" on upper right side (in the "Search settings" box)
3. Click on "Content settings..."
4. Click on "All cookies and site data..." under "Cookies"
5. Search for "Vanguard" in the search box (in the "Search cookies" box)
6. Click "Remove all shown"

The main page should work after that. I didn't really dig into why it was broken, but this fixed it for me.
