I have found that if the login redirect is using the default setting (DESKTOP) that it significantly slows down the login process.
To change this manually go to application/config/generated_overrides/concrete.php and around line 19 you should see
'login_redirect' => 'DESKTOP',

Change it to...
'login_redirect' => 'HOMEPAGE',

Just ignore the message at the top of this page that states 'DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE DIRECTLY' since you are able to amend it in the dashboard.

It could be that your site's connection to your account is not configured correctly.

If you can't get that sorted out, @concreteOwl's suggestion is the way round it.
