Pokemon GO: How To Fix Loading Screen Freezing Bug

Pokemon GO users might face an annoying error if they try to open the app during certain times. This error manifests in the form of the loading screen freezing at the start of the game, which usually happens when the servers are facing issues.

Thankfully, there is a workaround to this error that can be used to bypass this loading screen and boot into the game. This workaround is rather simple and should work on both iOS and Android Smartphones.


If you are having issues with loading screen in Pokemon GO, then you can try to use this method. This method requires the player to turn on the Airplane mode in their Smartphones when the loading screen freezes due to server issues. They need to relaunch the app again and when the app asks for connection, disable the airplane mode and enable wifi again.

    Doesn’t work for me… I only get a “Sign Out” -button the next time I open the app.

        That still didn’t work for me. Just sits on the white screen with the ball spinning then a page loads saying it is server issues.

        Only thing that works for me is Uninstall and re-install. Somehow that bypasses the “server issues”
