Forced to Login again after opening a new Report

Hi Guys,


Whenever I open a Desktop report, I am being forced to login to my PowerBI account before Publishing.


I have been having this issue since I updated to the most recent version of PowerBI desktop.


Previously, I would be continuiously logged into my account when I open multiple reports.


Is anyone else having this problem?







I just tested with the latest PBI Desktop Version: 2.38.4491.282 64-bit (August 2016), I can get the user logged in automatically with following steps. Do you have different result with them?


  1. Open a .pbix file and user has not signed in.
  2. Sign in with a proper user by clicking the “Sign in” button in the upper right corner.
  3. Open some other .pbix files, the same user will sign in automatically.


Best Regards,


Hi Herbert,


I am following the same step process, however on Step 3, I am being forced to login again. Where it used to have my name, It now has 'Sign In' appearing again.






I tested both on EN Win10 and Win2012R2 with latest desktop version and both worked. Did you use different OS or version with me? You can try to uninstall the PBI Desktop from your computer completely and restart, then download and reinstall the latest version.


Best Regards,
