Why does the Readable Web browser extension open up the log-in page in a new tab when I click the button?

You need to be logged-in to your Readable English account to use the browser extension.

The Readable Web browser extension for Chrome and Safari web browsers must first communicate with our servers to check that you have logged into your Readable English account. If you are not logged-in then a tab will be opened with a log-in page. Once logged into the Learning Portal you can use the extension.
