Uncaught (in promise) Error: No access token found

Hi all.

This is the first time I’m using Auth0.
I’m using React for my app, and although the Auth0 login/signup works fine. When users opt out of signing in and try to navigate the site without logging in, it breaks and gives me this error in the console: Uncaught (in promise) Error: No access token found

This is what my Auth.js looks like:

import history from '../../utils/history';
import auth0 from 'auth0-js';
import { AUTH_CONFIG } from './auth0-variables';

export default class Auth {
  auth0 = new auth0.WebAuth({
    domain: AUTH_CONFIG.domain,
    clientID: AUTH_CONFIG.clientId,
    redirectUri: AUTH_CONFIG.callbackUrl,
    audience: `https://${AUTH_CONFIG.domain}/userinfo`,
    responseType: 'token id_token',
    scope: 'openid profile'


  constructor() {
    this.login = this.login.bind(this);
    this.logout = this.logout.bind(this);
    this.handleAuthentication = this.handleAuthentication.bind(this);
    this.isAuthenticated = this.isAuthenticated.bind(this);
    this.getAccessToken = this.getAccessToken.bind(this);
    this.getProfile = this.getProfile.bind(this);


  login() {

  handleAuthentication() {
    this.auth0.parseHash((err, authResult) => {
      if (authResult && authResult.accessToken && authResult.idToken) {
      } else if (err) {
        alert(`Error: ${err.error}. Check the console for further details.`);

  setSession(authResult) {
    // Set the time that the access token will expire at
    let expiresAt = JSON.stringify((authResult.expiresIn * 1000) + new Date().getTime());
    localStorage.setItem('access_token', authResult.accessToken);
    localStorage.setItem('id_token', authResult.idToken);
    localStorage.setItem('expires_at', expiresAt);
    // navigate to the home route

  getAccessToken() {
    const accessToken = localStorage.getItem('access_token');
    if (!accessToken) {
      throw new Error('No access token found');
    return accessToken;

  getProfile(cb) {
    let accessToken = this.getAccessToken();
    this.auth0.client.userInfo(accessToken, (err, profile) => {
      if (profile) {
        this.userProfile = profile;
      cb(err, profile);

  logout() {
    // Clear access token and ID token from local storage
    // navigate to the home route

  isAuthenticated() {
    // Check whether the current time is past the 
    // access token's expiry time
    let expiresAt = JSON.parse(localStorage.getItem('expires_at'));
    return new Date().getTime() < expiresAt;
