There are instances when you encounter errors after several times using an application on your computer. However, there are also moments when you constantly experience trouble and issue from the start.
Microsoft Teams is one of the reliable online communication and collaboration platforms available today. But, it does not guarantee that you will not see any problem when using the app or website for team task management and video meetings. Sometimes, there are errors when you try to sign in to your Microsoft Teams account.
Examples of account authentication issues when signing in on the Microsoft Teams app or website are error codes CAA20003, CAA2000C, or CAA20004. These errors happen on a Windows 10/11 PC, Mac and Linux computers, or Chromebook device. You will also receive the following error messages:
“Something went wrong. We couldn’t sign you in. If this error persists, contact your system administrator and provide the error code CAA2000C.”
“Loading Microsoft Teams. Modern authentication failed here, but you’ll still be able to sign in. Your status code is caa20004.”
“Something went wrong. We couldn’t sign you in. If this error persists, contact your system administrator and provide the error code CAA20004.”
