This is the generic HTTP status code that a server returns to your browser when access to a requested page is denied. For instance, this can happen if you try to open a web page without first entering a user name and password.

403 errors indicate that you are trying to access a resource that is not allowed. eg. Trying to access a members page when not logged in.

A 403 error means that the website you are trying to navigate to is not longer operational. This may mean the website is down temporarily or forever.

When you get a 403 error it means that the page you are trying to access is not available or you are not authorized to view the page.

A 403 error means you have hit an access control limit on a web page. In short, you are trying to view something to which you do not have access. The error may be from a failed authentication (wrong password or user ID) or a website not visible to those who are not logged in.
