I've recently faced this issue where the desktop app keeps verifying my connection each time I open it, but it never opens.
The same verification takes place on the website but Upwork pens on the website in a second.
To make the desktop application work, I have to delete the cache folder on my drive and reinstall the app, but it only works once
