For anyone still experiencing this on OSX, check your hosts file by running this from a terminal window:
sudo open -a TextEdit /etc/hosts
Check that the file has this line:
In my case I use vagrant a lot and that entry had been wiped out at some point. The GoPro software requires that localhost is accessible, and re-adding that line to the hosts file solved the issue for me

Sadly I already have that line in my hosts files...
The stranger thing on this is the fact I have both on my OSX system Quick. But it runs only on the older one... Still stucked on my MacBook Pro 15 Retina Mid 2015. *sob sob*

Thank you @nathanj81332! I am now logged into the GoPro Quik app for the first time and everything seems to be functioning as usual.
I checked the host file as you suggested. The localhost part of the line 127.0.0.1 localhost was missing. I editted the file on the desktop and replaced it where it should be and bamb! Quik opens and authenticates without a hicup!
Lets hope this is a permenat fixfor me.
Thanks again for the help!

Yesss, thanks, the localhost procedure worked also fo me.
I made also another mistake: I edited the host file using the txt extension, the host file must be written with no extension.

Can someone at GoPro please provide an update on this issue? I cannot do anything with my camera and cannot get into Quick, as my problem like many others, is that the screen gets stuck at "Authenticating...". Tried everything including reinstall, reboot, editing hosts file, etc. and nothing has worked. This needs to be resolved ASAP.
