Disable Secure DNS on Chrome:

  • Open Chrome and access its menu.
  • Go to Settings > Privacy and Security > Security.
  • Disable the option for “Use Secure DNS.”
  • Alternatively, if you prefer to keep it enabled, select “With Customized” and set it to another DNS server, such as Google DNS:
    • Primary DNS:
    • Secondary DNS:

3. Flush the System’s DNS Cache

When the DNS cache of your system becomes corrupted, it can prevent the browser from obtaining the correct IP address for ChatGPT, resulting in website malfunction. This issue can be resolved by flushing the DNS cache of the system.


  • Open Command Prompt as an administrator.
  • Execute the following command:
ipconfig /flushdns


  • Open Terminal.
  • Execute the following commands:
sudo dscacheutil -flushcache
sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder


  • Open Terminal.
  • Execute the following command:
sudo systemd-resolve --flush-caches

4. Disable Custom Browser Launch Properties:

Using custom launch properties in the browser can disrupt the proper functioning of the ChatGPT website. Eliminating these custom launch properties may resolve the issue.

Remove Custom Launch Properties from Chrome:

  1. Close the browser.
  2. Right-click on the browser shortcut (e.g., on your desktop or Quick Launch).
  3. Select “Properties.”
  4. In the Target box, remove any additional launch properties. Examples include:
  • disable gpu
  • vsync
  • disable frame rate limit

For Chrome on Windows, the Target box should resemble the following:

"C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe"

5. Open ChatGPT Website in Browser’s Private Mode:

When browser cache or extensions interfere with the loading of the ChatGPT website, accessing the site in the browser’s private mode can help diagnose the issue. Private mode may be referred to by different names in various browsers:

  • Chrome: New Incognito Window
  • Safari, Brave, Opera, Firefox: New Private Window
  • Edge: New InPrivate Window

If ChatGPT functions properly in private mode, it indicates that an extension or browser cache may be causing the problem. In such cases, disabling extensions or clearing the browser’s cookies/cache is necessary.

5.1. Disable Browser Extensions:

If ChatGPT works in the browser’s incognito mode, follow these steps to identify and address problematic browser extensions:

  • Chrome: Click on the Extensions icon and select “Manage Extensions.”
  • Firefox: Click on the Extensions icon and navigate to the Extensions tab.
  • Safari: Open Safari Settings and access Extensions.

After disabling extensions, relaunch the browser to check if ChatGPT operates correctly. Re-enable extensions one by one to pinpoint the troublesome ones. Consider uninstalling non-essential extensions or enabling them only when necessary.

5.2. Clear Browser Cookies and Cache:

If ChatGPT functions in the browser’s incognito mode but issues persist after disabling extensions, corrupt browser cookies or cache may be the culprit. Clearing these can resolve technical glitches:

  • Chrome: Access Chrome Settings > Privacy and Security > Clear browsing data.
  • Firefox: Go to Firefox Settings > Privacy & Security > Clear Data.
  • Safari: Open Safari Settings > Privacy > Manage Website Data.

After clearing cookies and cache, relaunch the browser to verify if ChatGPT operates normally.

5.2.3. Clear the Browser Cache:

You can follow the instructions based on your browser. Here are the steps for clearing the cache on Chrome:

  1. Launch Chrome and click on the three vertical ellipses in the top right to open the Chrome menu.
  2. Go to More Tools > Clear Browsing Data.
  3. At the bottom of the menu, click “Sign Out” (this will preserve your browsing history in your Google account) and switch to the Advanced tab.
  4. Select the Time Range of “All Time” and checkmark all the categories listed.
  5. Click “Delete Data.” Once completed, relaunch Chrome.

6. Try Another DNS Server

When the system’s DNS fails to provide the correct IP address for the ChatGPT website in real-time, changing the DNS server can resolve the issue.


  1. Open Control Panel and navigate to Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Change Adapter Settings.
  2. Double-click on the network type and select Properties.
  3. Double-click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4).
  4. Enable “Use the Following DNS Server Addresses” and enter the following:
  • Preferred DNS Server:
  • Alternate DNS Server:
  1. Click Apply/OK to save the changes.


  1. Go to the Mac’s System Preferences > Network > (select network type) > Advanced > DNS.
  2. Click on the Plus icon and add the following DNS servers:

Click OK to save the changes.

7. Try Another Network or Use a VPN

If ChatGPT is not compatible with your ISP or if access to the server is restricted, trying another network can help diagnose the issue.

  • Enable the Hotspot on Your Android Phone.
  • Connect your system or phone to another network or use a VPN.
  • Avoid using public Wi-Fi, as devices connected to the same public Wi-Fi may share the same IP address, causing issues.
  • If ChatGPT works, disconnect from the alternate network or VPN and reconnect to the regular network to see if the issue persists.
  • If ChatGPT still doesn’t load, troubleshoot the router, network firewall, DNS blocking service, or ISP to identify and resolve the problem.
  • Disable IP Address Tracking on iOS Devices:

Enabling Limit IP Address Tracking on an iOS device can hide its IP from known trackers, potentially causing ChatGPT servers to not respond to queries from unknown IP addresses.

To resolve this issue:

  1. Launch iPhone Settings and navigate to Wi-Fi > (open details of the network).
  2. Disable “Limit IP Address Tracking” and check if ChatGPT works.
