The problem came of the version of Magento.

First, i used the 2.0.0 version - i uninstalled it and reinstalled the 2.0.2 version => it's working now.


Try this.

  • Base URLs (Secure) -> Use Secure URLs on Storefront -> Yes

    -> Use Secure URLs in Admin -> Yes

    -> Enable HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) -> Yes

    -> Upgrade Insecure Requests -> Yes

php bin/magento cache:clean



Try cleaning up your cookies for the particular domain. This worked for me.
