    I cannot use Qlik Sense

      Hello everyone,


      I have just installed Qlik Sense to try it a bit. After the installation is completed, I have clicked on the shortcut on my desktop and I got the error message : "Authentification Failure, please check your username ans password"..


      What is that ? I don't even know what username and password it is refering to...


      Any idea ? I haven't found anything on that on the internet ..


      Thanks for your help

                  Hi Laura - this may be related to some of the local security and network  settings on your machine.


                  Try this:



                  If so:


                  • Close Qlik Sense
                  • go to C:\Users\<user profile>\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Log
                  • delete all log files
                  • Start Qlik Sense
                  • send us new log file that was created - by attaching to this discussion


                  This also may be related to local network settings, that sometimes involve the use of a proxy server. if you can check your network settings - internet options and make sure to bypass proxy for local addresses:




                  The try to start Qlik Sense again


                  Some other things you can also try:


                  • Uninstall Qlik Sense
                  • Make sure you are logged in with a user account that can install software
                  • OR - when installing make sure to choose Run as Administrator...


                  Let us know how you do. We are committed to your success and want to make sure you have a good experience with the product.

                Hi Laura,


                Did you install the software as the same username that is trying to run the application?


                I know some people who always install software using administrator login.
