Installation stalls at Registration MacOS Mojave 10.14.6

On MacOS Mojave 10.14.6, I was having authentication problems. Tried to unlink my user account but was unsuccessful, so I deleted SourceTree incl files in Application Support directory. Reinstalled, seemed successful, but when I choose BitBucket Cloud at the Registration step, it hangs on a white screen with a message, please wait.

I am able to use this on my Windows machines without this intricacy to I'll just stick to them.  Something seems off in this Mac solution - it's certainly far more difficult to install. If there is a way to get up and running without the Access Keys, which is possbile in Windows, please LMK. thx
