    When I click “open platform” it loops back to My IG, how do I fix this?


    1. Close all web browser windows. Make sure all windows are definitely closed. Often times this issue is a result of multiple windows holding login sessions for the platform, and simply closing all browser windows down and logging in again will fix it.

    2. Check that your default account is set to an active account on My IG>Settings>Default view. Helpdesk can assist with this if you are not able to access the default view.

    3. Try clearing browser cookies. This is not the preferred option because you will lose saved browser settings, like saved usernames/passwords, etc.
