When I use the Mac App, the log in screen is in a constant loop. I tried a clean restart but it didn't help. Suggestions?

I updated the app this morning and this just started. I've tried the clean restart as directed by the support community post but nothing has helped. 


Hello kelsey,

Thank you for taking the initial troubleshooting steps in fixing the issue. There's another troubleshooting step we can test to help fix the constant looping of your QuickBooks Mac App. 

Let's try to clear out the stored files in the application's cache. Click File in the upper left corner, then Clear Cache.

If the same thing happens, we can uninstall and reinstall the application. Here's the link to reinstall the app: https://quickbooks.intuit.com/apps/. Scroll down to the Get the QuickBooks Mac or Windows App section, then click the Free Download button.

You can always come back if you have questions. I'll keep an eye for any reported issues and will update you whenever I find a report related to this behavior.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
