Every once in a while something wonky happens when trying to log into or accept an invite from an organization, etc. There are several reasons for this, and in some cases, it can be a bit frustrating to try and triage or diagnose. If you get a generic error, please try the following things.

As simple as it may seem, sometimes all that is needed is to clear your browser cache, or do a hard reset on your browser. This will not delete any information just simply reset your browser, but will help ensure that your session tokens and cookies are up to date when loading the page.

Clearing your Cache:

Instructions for clearing your cache and cookies can be found here if you are using Google Chrome. If you are using Firefox, please try these instructions outlined here.

Other useful hints:

One other tip that can be useful not only for TeamsID, but for other sites as well, is to ensure that your browser is up to date. Sometimes there are breaking changes between browser versions that can impact how they handle your session tokens, etc. For instance, you can update your Google Chrome browser here.

Keep in mind that if you are using the new Microsoft Edge browser, this browser is built off of the Chrome engine, so some similarities in how it performs might be noticed by users who are used to the older Edge or Internet Explorer browsers.

Have you tried Incognito mode?

You can also try logging in with the incognito or private mode of these browsers.
