If you are reading this, then you must be aware how irritating this 400 bad Request Error is. it doesn’t let you log into your blog. The only options you have then is to use another browser or use the incognito mode.
If you want to use the same browser then you have to clear all your browser data. It doesn’t take long, but I hate when I am logged out of every website I’m mostly logged into (hint: Facebook, Gmail etc).
Even if you are not facing this issue right now, you should read this post as it is going to help you in future if something like this happens.
