Troubleshoot errors on Android mobile devices

Here are answers to questions we see regularly from customers.

The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a common building block for encrypted communications between clients and servers. The Outlook Groups app (client) uses SSL to talk to your work or school authentication server in order to validate your sign-in credentials on an encrypted channel. Your mobile device needs a valid SSL certificate to communicate securely with the server. This error can happen when the SSL certificate is disabled on your device or when the date and time on your device are incorrect. When you get an SSL certificate error message you can do one of the following:

  1. Correct the date and time on your Android device by tapping Settings > Date and time > Automatic date and time > ON.

  2. Contact your work or school IT administrator to make sure you have the right SSL certificate on your Android device. For more information about installing a certificate see Work with certificates.

This error could happen for two reasons:

  1. You interrupted the sign-in process by pressing the back button on your device while it was trying to contact the server. Just wait a few minutes and then try again.

  2. Your IT administrator has enabled two-step authentication for sign-in to the Outlook Groups app. Two-step authentication requires that you enter a PIN before you can continue. If you haven't configured MFA or didn't respond to the MFA request for a PIN then you won't be able to sign in to the app. See Set up 2-step verification for Office 365 for more information. If you aren't' sure about two-step authentication, contact your IT administrator.
