If you notice any unusual problems when you access the Classmates site, it may be due to an issue with the website, or it could be related to your computer or browser settings. Please follow the checklist below to troubleshoot the issue:
- Clear your cache/temporary internet files and cookies. Refer to the help center or technical support for your browser for instructions if needed. After clearing your cache, log out of the Classmates site, then log in again.
- Delete any bookmarks for Classmates. These might have an outdated link. Try opening www.classmates.com directly from your browser.
- Try a different browser. If possible, try accessing Classmates using a different web browser (supported browsers are Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome, and Edge).
- Update your browser version. You may need to update your web browser version to fully access Classmates features. Please note that our site is compatible with the more recent versions of the most commonly used browsers. Click here for more details.
- Check your security settings. Make sure certain areas of the Classmates site are not being blocked. If you're attempting to access Classmates from work, a corporate firewall may be preventing full access and functionality.
- Try another computer or device. If possible, try accessing the Classmates site from a different computer to see if the problem still occurs. If you're using a mobile device, keep in mind that while many features are optimized for mobile viewing, certain features and navigation will appear differently, and some options can only be found when accessing the site from a computer.
