Check and Report error


I tried to log a scammer number this morning but it failed at this page with a 401 Authorization Required error:

Hi @gus88


Is that error repeatable?  I can see that it is a software error in Community that should not have happened.


I'll flag it up to @StephenF the Community Manager who will be keen to investigate this software glitch with the vendors. Even more so if it's an error that's still there.

Hi gus88


It looks like somehow you have linked to our test environment the correct link for Check and Report is :


If you have that link saved as a favorite please change it to the one above

I got the same message this morning. I was reporting a scam call. A second login screen appeared asking for login ID and password. I declined, closed the page and then the community page opened.

Hi @gus88


Sorry to hear this could you confirm how you got that URL in the first place, there is no hidden secrets on that site, in fact its a mirror of the live stage minus any user accounts which we use to test out new bits n bobs however we never use it in any comms or link to it.


I just want to understand how you got that link? so we can update whatever is pointing to it.

i got to the same link.  I did an internet search for TalkTalk Check and Report and selected the link.  I did not use my community account or my TalkTalk account to access.

I’ve managed to bring up the community-stage web page again today.  I was on the Report and Check input page, had submitted the number and been told it was a first occurance.  The community login input fields are on that page, I input my details and the attached paged opened.

I nearly always get the second log in as in gdadpav even though I am logged in to the community, I don’t fill it in and then don’t bother reporting the number as you end up having to go through the whole system again until it lets you in 


i can can see that I am already logged in because of my avita in the address line
