Wordpress - Algorithm not allowed



I’m configuring my site in my localhost and the setup goes well with manual configuration.
But then I try to log in with Google I get this error:

There was a problem with your log in Error: There was an issue decoding the token, please review the Auth0 Plugin Error Log.

And the log:

redirect_login/decode / N/A / Algorithm not allowed

What should I do?


A common cause for that error would be the client application that you’re using to represent Wordpress to be configured to use RS256 while the Wordpress plugin currently expects HS256 signed tokens.

The process to update that setting is described in the answer to this similar question:

Also ensure that the client application types is correctly set to a regular web application.
