    Do you have the latest version of Office installed? sign in problems often occur because you do not have the latest version installed. – LPChip Aug 17 '18 at 12:23

  • You need to verify hosts is restore to the default contents. only contained Since Office 365 is a subscription, you have to log into your MS account, there isn't another way to activate it (unlike the perpetual license). This question cannot be answered unless your willing to reverse those changes the program made to your hosts file – Ramhound Aug 17 '18 at 16:46

On this computer, open Regedit to check the following registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Common\SignIn HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Common\SignIn

Check if there is an value for "SignInOptions". If there is, please remove this value or change it to 0. Then restart Office 2013, check if you can sign in.
