Verification of any social account fails. Browser error says 502 BAD GateWay


I have tried to verify my social accounts, and attempted the hard refresh suggestions found on the forum, but nothing helps.

I checked the console log of my browser (Chrome and Edge) and they both give me similar errors:

Proof url returned unexpected http status 502.
              Unable to validate proof.

Is this a problem with my Blockstack browser? My OS is Windows 10.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.


Hi @janmande, this should have been resolved in the latest browser version. I recommend updating and trying to verify again as described in our FAQ. If you continue to have trouble, feel free to reach out to [email protected].


Thanks. Upgrading to latest version (v0.26.2) fixed the issue :grin:


Sounds good @janmande. Glad that fixed the issue!
