Connection issues "signing in..."

The game seems to just go into offline mode, I have never been online in the game. I tried to verify, port forwarding, connecting directly to internet and no firewall on.

I suspect the "signing in " does not work, because it can take minutes to get past that, but no idea how to fix that.

Also have same issue. Support has been useless at Epic

Started working, unsure if just randomly or by removing Lsass.exe from firewall block list. Maybe needed a restart for the program for it to start working, so shutting down firewall would have not helped instantly.
