Pokemon Go: Failed to Login Error Explained

Another error code.

by Jesse Vitelli

Pokemon Go requires a constant internet connection, which shouldn’t be surprising, considering it’s a game based on location data and other services. This means you’ll need to login to your account, either one you created or your Google account. Sometimes you can have trouble logging in, and that’s frustrating. Here’s what the “Failed to Login” error means in Pokemon Go.

Pokemon Go: Failed to Login Error Explained

If you’re trying to log into Pokemon Go and keep receiving the message “Failed to Login” despite using the correct credentials, you might be left wondering why. According to the official Pokemon Go support website, it’s not your fault.

“You may receive “failed to log in” or “unable to authenticate” error messages if our servers are experiencing a temporary issue or your network connectivity is poor. Check to ensure your mobile device has a strong network connection, or wait a short while, then try logging in again. If the issue persists, try closing and reopening the Pokémon GO app.”

The most probable cause for this is that the Pokemon Go servers are experiencing some technical difficulties, which means no matter what you try as a workaround, it won’t get you in. Your only answer is to wait for the servers to be fixed. You can also stay up to date on the Niantic Twitter account, where the company will post when issues arise.

You can try resetting your password, but we don’t recommend this as it can cause other issues if the servers are experiencing problems. If you truly have forgotten your information, obviously, go ahead and do that, but try to steer clear of this while the Pokemon Go servers are down.
