This question already has an answer here:

I have been trying to add my Google account under Online Account section, but, for some reason, the authentication windows go blank during the final step after I enter email address and password.

Here is the screenshot -> Screenshot

I was able to add the same account through my laptop; this issue exists only on my PC.

I tried restarting the PC, switching to a different Internet connection, upgrading available packages, checked logs for any clues but could not find anything.

I hope that someone here will point me in the right direction.

Update: I am using Google Suite if this is relevant to the issue.

I downloaded the fresh copy of iso and did new install twice but I keep having the same issue. (07/05/2017)

  • This happens often. Usually it is enough to press F5 at that point, or to go back and try again. – Jos May 4 '17 at 12:20
  • @Jos I have been trying for the past 3 days. Pressing F5 does nothing but I have tried Right Click and Reload. – Kevin S May 4 '17 at 12:22
  • @jos, google has a new method for apps to communicate and you have to set up your phone to get it to work. Let OP see the dup I added – George Udosen May 4 '17 at 12:23
  • @George I am facing a completely different issue. I cannot add Google account to online account. – Kevin S May 4 '17 at 12:25
