There are many bugs and errors that frequently occur on TikTok, such as the error 2433, the ‘no internet error’, or TikTok constantly crashing. Most of these errors you can’t fix - you just have to wait for TikTok to fix them. However, users reported getting the TikTok ‘Server Error logging into TikTok. They also experienced being logged out of their accounts and have been prevented from logging back in.
In this article, we’ll show you why TikTok is saying ‘Server error’ and how to fix the ‘Server error’ on TikTok.
If you're seeing a TikTok ‘Server error’ message when you try to log in to TikTok, don't worry - you're not alone. Many TikTok users have been experiencing this problem recently.
Most frequently, when a TikTok ‘Server error’ occurs, this may be down to a TikTok server issue or an issue with your device or network connection.
As we can’t fix TikTok servers, there are several alternative troubleshooting methods you can try to fix the ‘Server error’ on TikTok and get the app working properly again.
The first thing you can do is check your Wi-Fi or cellular data, as many users experience the ‘Server error’ on TikTok if the internet connection is not stable.
Open other apps and web browsers to check if the issue persists there. If you can’t open any other app or web page, or turn off and back on your Wi-Fi or cellular data.
To check your Wi-Fi internet connection on an Android device:
If you are using cellular data instead, this is how to check if it’s connected:
If you have an iOS device, here’s how to check your Wi-Fi network connection:
If you are using cellular data on your iPhone, follow the steps below:
After turning off and on your Wi-Fi network or cellular data connection, try logging into your TikTok account and check if the ‘Server Error’ message persists.
If you still can’t log in, restart your Wi-Fi router, and reconnect your Android or iPhone device to the Wi-FI network.
If restarting the router didn’t make any difference, contact your service provider to check if they may have a network outage.
If TikTok is not working properly and you see a server error, you can check the status of TikTok’s servers at Downdetector and see if TikTok is down.
The website monitors other websites and shows if they have had any issues in the past 24 hours. You can also submit a report on the page if you are experiencing any issues.
If Downdetector indicates that there is an issue with the TikTok servers, the only thing you can do is wait and regularly refresh the page to see if the error is fixed.
If you are using VPN, it may be causing the ‘Server error’ message. VPN protects your privacy when you are using the internet.
However, it can also make your internet connection unstable. This is because a VPN hides your IP address and swaps it with another one from its proxy servers. Your IP address may have trouble connecting to TikTok’s servers.
Therefore, turn off any VPN services and check if you still see the ‘Server error’.
Sometimes TikTok issues may be caused by the cached data the app stores on your device. To clear the TikTok cache on iPhone or Android:

Open the TikTok app, go to your profile, tap on the three lines in the top-right corner, select ‘Settings & privacy, go to ‘Report a problem’, tap on ‘Account and profile, select ‘Login” > ‘Other’, tap on ‘Need more help’ and explain your issue.
