"Invalid State" Error

Hello,
A couple of days ago I’ve installed and activated the Auth0 plugin for WordPress. I went to the login page, entered my credentials and encountered the common “Invalid State” error (See below), coupled with a 500 error.


Things I have tried:

  • Checked for errors in the console, nothing there.
  • Turned on cookies for my browser.
  • I’ve verified the Auth0 logs in the dashboard, and it shows that the login was successful.
  • I’ve set the WP_DEBUG constant in wp-config.php to True and looked for any errors (In special the “BeforeValidException”), but did not find anything other than a few unrelated warnings.
  • On the WP-Engine “General Settings” I purged all caches.

Details:
PHP version: 7.3
Auth0 Plugin version: 3.11.1

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
