ChatGPT is the new AI phenomenon that has taken the world by storm. You can ask it anything, and it will reply as if a human (with a great mind). However, several users have reported coming across a situation where ChatGPT is stuck in a verification loop.

If you are also among such users and are looking for a resolution, then you have landed in the right place. Because here, we will give you a bunch of solutions to resolve the ChatGPT stuck in verification loop. Let us get right through it!

Why is ChatGPT stuck in verification?

OpenAI, just like every other website, uses human verification to ensure that a human is using the website and not a robot. This helps them prevent any unusual activities on login from a user’s account.

Here are some reasons because of why the ChatGPT can get stuck in the verification loop:

  • Browser cache is corrupt: Often corrupt browser cache can interfere with the smooth functioning of a website.
  • A browser extension is conflicting: We use browser extensions to increase the feature set of our browsers. However, they can interfere with the browser’s performance and cause several issues.
  • Your account is at fault: Chances are that the account that you are using to access ChatGPT is blocked or facing issues.
  • ChatGPT server is problematic: The ChatGPT server might be under maintenance, because of which you are getting the error.

What can I do if ChatGPT is stuck in verification?
