[Solved] Microsoft Teams: We need you to sign in! Either your password changed or the server needs your sign-in info again.

If you are a Microsoft Teams user or managing an IT network for once you will end up with this error. Even after completing 3 years on the service and collecting dozens of user information through feedback, Microsoft Teams isn’t perfect software yet.

When I installed Microsoft Teams in a new PC I was continuously getting this error “We need you to sign in! Either your password changed or the server needs your sign-in info again.

Because of this error I wasn’t able to login Teams in the PC. I click the Sign-in button and Teams goes away. A few seconds later it opens up again and I’m at the same error/prompt window.  It’s done this multiple times.

I tried to completely uninstall the software and download the latest version from the Teams web portal. But even after installing the latest version, this issue didn’t resolve.
