I’ve had various authentication issues in GitHub Desktop over the last couple years, and I want to share my latest workaround:
After opening Developer Tools (Ctrl + Shift + I) and attempting to authenticate (Options > Accounts > Sign In), I noticed one of the responses (in Network tab) indicated it was loaded from cache. After enabling “Disable cache” and retrying, I was able to authenticate successfully.
- Windows 10
- GitHub Desktop 2.6.1
