I recently changed from one MS Office 365 email/organization to another.  I've removed the "old" Office 365 account from everywhere I can find on my Mac, but when I launch Microsoft Teams - every time - it asks me to login with my "old" email address.  When I click sign in under a different account, it goes through - but Microsoft Teams just gets stuck in the same loop.  How can I fix this so I can use the desktop app with my new email/organization?

Try removing the password from the keychain on the Mac. This may solve it

That still won't do it...same login loop.  Thank you for the suggestion.

Ok, try deleting the keychain itself. If it still doesn’t work uninstall and reinstall Teams

Let me know how it goes

This didn't work either - and I removed and reinstalled Teams and no luck.

I’ve got this login loop after I logged in with me private MS account in Teams. I stucken in a login loop when I tried to log with my company account in Teams. Close your Teams application and go to $HOME//Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Teams in files browser and delete/move the Teams folder to Teams_old for example.

 

Start your Teams application, the Teams folder will created and the Login window appears.

 

For me it works, when I delete the $HOME//Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Teams folder after I was logged in with me private MS account.

@Christopher Hoard Sure did for me. I kept getting annoyed for hours, after I had altered/deleted the com.microsoft.teams folder but not the aforementioned folder… Thanks heaps, Heiko1410!

Same problems after update my MACOSX and the teams software.

 

MacOSX: 10.15.6

Teams SW Version: 1.3.00.21753

 

Error Message after login with business account:

Teams: desktop-9ca18d2a-9ef3-41f1-bbaa-db42cb327a67

Fehlercode – 1:403
 
My solution to delete  $HOME//Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Teams folder don't work in the software version above. But it's interesting my private MS account work and the business account stuck in login loop. Deinstall with AppCleaner and install the Teams_osx.pkg don't work. Any clue how to fix this ??

@atunellRTG I got same issue that Teams on Mac stuck in login loop. It turns out the root cause is my certification - I reinstalled my mac without changing my computer name. After that, I use my org's MDM tool to enroll my Mac but failed but I didn't noticed that. So I keep got that login loop issue.

 

For my case, the solution is simple - I removed my Mac registered in MDM portal with old computer name. Rename the computer and re-enroll the Mac. Once done, I can login Teams without any issues then.

 

Hope it helps for your case.
