Stuck in a login loop after password change
I recently change my system password, with MS Teams is already up and running in the background. I open Teams to check new messages, and it locks the app with the pop up "Can you please sign in again? Sorry for any inconvenience. Login Now"
I click Login Now but all it does is restarting MS Teams and show me the same message. I am unable to re-authenticate. I've tried restarting the application, that didn't work.
I had to right click on the systray icon to logout and re-login. I should be able to re-login when the app prompted "Login Now"
Same issue on android, windows, and mac. Please fix. Having to troubleshoot this every few months is getting old.
Same issue, please fix

Same issue - stuck in a loop after password reset (20 FEB 2018).
Fixed by right clicking on Teams in the Taskbar to logout. Still annoying to have to do since we have to change our passwords every few weeks - and it always resets my theme :(

Yes there are workarounds but it is still annoying for the user. The root cause of this problem needs to be addressed please Microsoft.
Joe Lynch's solution worked. Right click on Teams in the Taskbar, logout. It will allow you to enter your username and password.
Check your autodiscover settings. We were having issues with our exchange periodically disconnecting and reconnecting users. Additionally, users randomly would have to re-authenticate. We found our autodiscover were not configured correctly to our domain in our DNS registrar. You could also use Microsoft Support and Recovery tool to find the issue, that is how we found the autodiscover issue. You can go to 1. https://testconnectivity.microsoft.com/ to find the Microsoft Support and Recovery Tool. Good luck.

Just experienced this. Workaround (right-click systray or taskbar icon and choose log out) was successful, but this needs resolution. Microsoft Teams Version 1.1.00.2251 (64-bit).

Happened today - still an issue. Everyone in my company has to change their password once a quarter at minimum. This is bound to cause issues here.
Martin Ivanov, Thanks so much! This worked perfectly.
This happened to me just today. It is a shame that such a big company have cant't fix a bug like this for so long time

Still a problem on 2018/01/22 (JAN 22 2018). Get real! I cannot log into ANY office apps - sometimes I am prompted for a username, but the password dialog just closes.
Still an issue 18/01/2018. Can't believe this.

Hi Teams Team,
Did you plan to solve this an the next update? When will this be released. It stops us from doing a company roll - out so we really need to solve this urgently!
Still an issue 30-11-2017
Quick logout was successful for me too. Thanks! Microsoft Teams Version 1.0.00.30452 (64-bit) - last updated on 11/9/17.
On a Mac, open Keychain Access and remove all Teams related entries. Then open Teams app and you should now be able to log in.
I had this happen today. The work around suggested worked.
