Unfortunately, sometimes SharePoint is unavailable and the following error message appears on the screen: ‘We’re sorry, sign-in isn’t working right now. But we’re on it! Please try again later.  If this problem persists, contact your support team’.

In this article, we’ll tell you why this error occurs in the first place and how you can fix it.
