Known plugin issues

If you try to click on the Register, Sign in, or Authorize button and receive no response, this is a sign that a plugin or addon installed on your browser is interfering with your access to the ORCID registry. Certain plugins intended to preserve your privacy, such as uBlock, will prevent you from registering or signing into the ORCID Registry. Generally you should be able to work around this by white listing to any addons that may cause a problem.
