    All I do is type it in incorrectly. If I try logging in again right after and type it in correctly, then I get into my account? This also has happened to me on multiple computers. I've found very little to nothing about this issue when searching for it online. Has anyone else had this happen to them? How do I fix it and will it go away if I unlink my account?
