Thumbs down

Login.gov was useless today. Encountered a number of different types of errors, using both Firefox and Chrome, while trying to create an account.

The most unusual was, after entering a phone number for the mandatory two-factor authentication, the system simply dumps back to the email/password login screen -- but in French!

It also happened a second time, but reverted back to the login screen in Spanish.

Other errors included apparently not accepting an email address for account creation (the account creation process page just refreshes itself with a blank field or a generic error message), and non-existent or non-informative error messages after trying to log in with email address and password (that is, trying to determine whether account creation had actually been successful) and getting dumped back at the log in screen.

I sure hope they improve it soon!

Set mine up yesterday with some difficulty but got through it eventually. Set my wife up this morning and it went right straight through without any hiccups or issues.

Trying to use the toll-free number 855-873-4637 but it says that my call can not be completed at this time and I should try again later.

I got a reply:
Please note that if you do not know your PASSID number, we are working on an IT solution to allow you to link your account through your GOES User ID or other information. Please allow 1-2 business days for this to be implemented and deployed. You do not need to access your account unless you are already a member with pending travel plans. You do not need conditional approval letters for interviews. If you go to your interview, the officer interviewing you can provide you your PASSID.

Lessons learned in the past 48 hours using the New Trusted Traveler Programs website

As I mentioned when I first checked in on the new Global Entry platform my date of birth appeared wrong in the Manage Profile tab, however it appeared correct in the Account Profile screen as well as when clicking to update the passport information.

Here are other surprises:

- yesterday, logging in through my smartphone I discovered my date of birth was correct throughout the system (Manage Profile, Account Profile, etc.).

- this morning, logging in from my computer at home using Chrome Web Browser - the date of birth appeared correct everywhere as well.

- this morning, logging in from my work computer on Chrome - the date of birth appeared once again incorrect in Manage Profile.

-logging in from my work computer on Internet Explorer - the date of birth appeared correct throughout the system.

I keep saving screenshots with these discrepancies. If it were a minor error I wouldn't worry but it is after all the DOB (which by the way is one day wrong, e.g. appears as 13 instead of 14).

Overall at least in my case logging in through my smartphone is a smoother experience. The computer login sometimes sends me to the Spanish language page, or does not move to the Security Code page.

I wonder what other kind of errors flyertalk members get.

Guess what, this is what I got after I requested membership number/passid through their messaging system. Hope they figured this out pretty soon



Thank you for contacting the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Information Center.

To migrate your data from the old GOES to the new TTP system please go to https://ttp.cbp.dhs.gov and select the option that best applies to you from the homepage.

You will be prompted to create a login.gov account (if you don't already have one), and to provide biographical information and the PASSID/membership number from your application or membership. You can find this number on your letters from CBP or on the back of your card (9 digits before SC). If it matches what is in our system the migration will be successful.

Please note that if you do not know your PASSID number, we are working on an IT solution to allow you to link your account through your GOES User ID or other information. Please allow 1-2 business days for this to be implemented and deployed. You do not need to access your account unless you are already a member with pending travel plans. You do not need conditional approval letters for interviews. If you go to your interview, the officer interviewing you can provide you your PASSID.

If you need further assistance, please reply to this email and we will investigate how we may further assist you.

Thank you again for contacting the CBP Information Center.

I spent whole my yesterday on the phone re-dialing that and 202 number, and was no go.

Apparently they are trying to deploy an update to retrieve old goes account.

I successfully created my account, authenticated my email and mobile number, and verified my PASSID. Of course, when I went to put in my personal information and submit, I kept getting server errors (please try again in a few minutes). After 4-5 attempts over a half hour or so, I just closed it down.

Will try again later on a different browser (Chrome first time).

I wouldn't worry too much about the birthdate issue at this point. I expect that both this and the problem with appointment times are caused by the same mishandling of time zones. The software is clearly a mess.

I just set up a new account there in order to enter my new DL expiration date - worked fine! I am a bit concerned about losing the 16-digit key as they made such a big deal of it.

I saved it as a PDF document and emailed a copy to myself, so I have it on my computer's hard drive, the portable external hard drive where I backup my data and my Gmail inbox.

Thanks to the experiences shared on this thread, I was able to call and get the PASS ID this morning for an application that was already submitted and paid for on the old website (GOES) but in "pending review" status. Getting through was the tough part (I had to redial a dozen times just to get into the hold queue, which was 20+ callers and maybe 30-40 minutes on hold). The rep was very friendly and helpful, and for my part I've had no issues with login.gov (other than there rather clunky security measures) and even the confirmation SMS's came through quickly for me today.

Got my new login setup. Had to do it in Edge after Chrome and Safari wouldn't load into the profile page.

Bizarrely, everything now seems to be fine on both my work computer and my smartphone when accessing the new site (used to just keep refreshing to the login page on anything other than my phone). I wonder how much alpha/beta/uat testing they did before this was rolled out.
