Github desktop for mac cannot login
I’ve tried :
- Both my username and email for ‘Login’;
- Reinstall github desktop;
- Login with Git by trying “git push” to my repo and succeeded;
- And there is no problem with my login on github.com
Thank you for the help 😉

We ran into this same problem. The solution for us was to have the new user check their e-mail and authenticate their account with GitHub. After we did that we no longer received the vague error message.
I’ve ran into the same problem. I solved it by:
logging into the web site
then going to https://github.com/settings/applications
(Or menu Settings/Authorized Applications)
- revoking the access to “Github for MAC”
4.Then I had to sign in from the Desktop app 2-3 times before it worked again.
Remember: If you create by first time the Github Account and try to access to Desktop app (Mac/Windows) the message: “could not reach server” will appears if you haven’t clicked in “VERIFY EMAIL” in you inbox.
I just went to email and click on “verify email” link and try again. It worked for me.
