Sometimes browser extensions for example can be causing issues.

Hi @Meshia_Akingbade, welcome to our Community, and sorry for the trouble. This issue usually happens when you are logged into Asana in the browser with one email address and then try to login to the desktop app using a different email address.

In order to resolve this, I’d recommend the troubleshooting steps mentioned by Andrea. Clearing cache and cookies and using an incognito window usually solves the problem. Let us know how it goes! :slight_smile:
