Dear Sheena,


Thank you very much for your question!

What you have described suggests that something is blocking your connection on the system level. I would like to ask for the content of the hosts file on your machine:



- Open the Terminal on macOS (Finder > Utilities > Terminal)

- Run the following command (requires admin rights and password)

sudo nano /etc/hosts


Then take a screenshot of the opened dialog and send it to me. Feel free to drop me a Private Message about it when you're ready!


Looking forward to hearing from you!

Best regards,
