This is the common and frequent error we come across. It is very common practice that we login to our account and if suppose you are trying to log in to your account using Gmail, and it will prompt the message saying “Couldn’t Sign in”. If you are facing issue while logging in to Gmail from QuickBooks Desktop, need not to worry, we’ll help you to sign in to your account in no time.

Make a remark that in QuickBooks Desktop, Google made an up gradation to add security, so if at all you’re using Gmail you must reconnect to your account. Listed below are the steps to reconnect to your account:
