Fix Snapchat ‘Problem Connecting to the Server/Login Failed’ or ‘Verifying Device’.

Fix "There was a problem connecting to the server", “Verifying Device" or “Oh No! Your login temporarily failed” for your Android device error

Snapchat is the most popular image messaging and multimedia app used by millions across the globe. With the Snapchat app on Android, you may face a number of errors on your smartphone.

Here I have provided the fix for Snapchat error on issues of “There was a problem connecting to the server”, “Verifying Device,” or “Oh No! Your login temporarily failed” for your Android device. Relax and try any of the solutions to get the problem fixed.

Solution 1. Reboot the Device

A simple reboot should fix the problem; rebooting eliminates the technical problem if any. Reboot also helps in clearing RAM by killing background apps that are not performing any actions, thus giving the Snapchat app more free space to run.

Solution 2. Clear Snapchat Cache and Data

Clear App data and cache

  1. Open Settings of your Android device
  2. Open option called Apps or App manager
  3. Under All, look for the Snapchat app
  4. Clear cache and data followed by a quick reboot

Note: Clearing Cache and Data will delete app data like preference settings made, the account associated with the app and data, etc.

Solution 3. Reset all App Preferences

  1. Go to Settings on your Android device.
  2. Open Apps/Apps manager.
  3. check for All Apps.
  4. Tap on menu icon.
  5. Click on Reset App Preferences.

Solution 4. Disable Data Restriction

If you have metered your device’s internet usage or put any restriction in place, then consider disabling it, at least while sharing your data. Here’s how:

  1. Go to Settings, followed by Wi-Fi & Network.
  2. Then head over to the SIM & Network settings
  3. Select Data Saver under the Mobile Data section.
    Turn off Data Saver
  4. Finally, disable the Use Data Saver toggle.

Solution 5. Clear Google Play Services Cache

  1. Open Settings of your Android device
  2. Open option called Apps or App manager
  3. Under All, look for the Google Play Services app
  4. Clear cache followed by a quick reboot

Solution 6. Clear Google Services Framework Cache

Google Services Framework syncs your data and stores device data. It also helps in proper functioning of the system and installed apps.

  • Go to Settings > Application Manager > All > Google Services Framework > Tap on “Force stop” & tap then tap on the “Clear cache” button
  • Reboot your device

Solution 7. Reinstall the App

Uninstalling the app and reinstalling it will possibly solve the problem by removing any package installation error.

Solution 8. Update your Google Play Services.

If you are facing problems while using Google Products like Google Play Store, Hangouts, Spaces, Google Plus, etc, or 3rd-party services like Snapchat or Quora, etc., then the following process could fix the problem.

  1. Go to Settings > Select Security > Device administrators > Deactivate Android Device Manager.
  2. Go to Settings > Apps> All>Google Play services > tap Uninstall updates
  3. Play Services is automatically updated if an app requires an updated version
  4. Now again, go to Settings > Select Security > Device administrators >Activate Android Device Manager
  5. Reboot your device.
