Can't login via browser with correct password - could not verify token

I have problem with login via my admin user in browser.
I know that my password is correct because my desktop client was successfully logged without problems.
I just checked nextcloud log where I find this:
triied to login in admin but could not verify token.


Nextcloud version
Operating system and version Raspberrypi OS 64
Apache/2.4.54 (Debian)
PHP version 8.1

Is it just one browser on one device? Then it could be some add blocker or security app in the browser.

It’s my only one browser (Brave).
I have turned off cookie filter and after few days when I tried it… I open it.
On some forum or github I have read that it can be problem with cookies.
I don’t understand it…

I was having this exact problem until I used “Cookie AutoDelete” Firefox extension to delete all the cookies for my nextcloud domain. It was unintuitive to me because you would think that more cookies would be better and help you log in.

Cookies are no problems for own services e.g. Nextcloud. Maybe you can use a whitelist for the cookies. I only delete all cookies at end of browser session. Works for me with setting in browser without addon.
