If you have ever been using the BeReal application and tried to do something only to receive the “Unprocessable Entity” notification, then you know the frustration that it brings. In some extreme cases, this issue could last for hours and keep you from using the BeReal application as you like.
This guide will help you address these issues and get your application up and running again as it should be. So let’s get right into the different reasons you might be experiencing these issues. First, we should get into exactly what this error means.
What Does Unprocessable Entity BeReal Mean?
It means that the BeReal application has encountered some form of authentication error in regard to your login, account, or profile that is keeping you from performing the selection action. It is most common when attempting to accept a friend request or login into your profile.
This authentication error is largely due to a bug in the BeReal software that can sometimes cause the application to not properly carry through with actions that require login and account authentication. When this happens, the action that you have chosen such as login in or accepting a friend request will not work properly and display the “Unprocessable Entity” notification.
There are several potential causes for this issue and many fixes that you can try to address the issue. Luckily, most of the fixes listed later in this guide have been proven to resolve these issues. That being said, there is currently no way to keep them from reoccurring. Of course, if it happens again you can just try the fixes listed in this guide to resolve your issue.
Why Does It Say Unprocessable Entity BeReal
1. There’s A Bug
Bugs and glitches are common causes of all sorts of issues on the BeReal application. These types of errors are typically caused by runtime errors or application hang-ups that cause issues with functionality.
Bugs and glitches typically occur randomly and resolve themselves on their own, without any action needed from the user. That being said, in some cases bugs and glitches can be persistent and need to be addressed before you will have full functionality of your BeReal application.
You should consult the list of troubleshooting methods found later in this guide to help you resolve these types of issues. As previously mentioned, bugs and glitches that are persistent will need to be addressed before you will be able to properly use BeReal and its features.
While your BeReal application is experiencing bug-related issues, it is possible that you will be logged out automatically. This can be frustrating, but the troubleshooting methods contained later in this guide can help your resolve these issues.
Fix – Log Out Then Back In
Logging in and out of the BeReal application can help encourage the application to resolve any account issues you are facing that could be keeping your application from working correctly.
Like any application, the BeReal application can get hung up due to bugs and glitches. These could cause your BeReal application to not work correctly.
Logging in and out of your account will refresh your application and encourage the resolution of any errors that your application could be experiencing.
This can force account privileges to be reevaluated and processed correctly if they were experiencing issues due to some internal error the application is experiencing.
Fix 2 – Update BeReal to Get Rid Of Bugs
If you are having issues, it could be because the version of applications you are using is out of date. The BeReal application release periodic updates that improve the functionality and user experience on the app. The updates also serve to fix bugs and glitches that they have been made aware of.
Keeping your applications up to date is vital for an optimal experience. If you let your application fall behind on updates, you run the risk of encountering errors and bugs with your BeReal’s application functions more frequently.
To update the applications, you will need to navigate to the app store and find whichever application you are trying to update. On the application page in your phone’s app store, you will be able to view any potential update files that are available for your application.
You will need to manually download and install the update file for it to be applied to your phone. Once this has been done, you should close and reopen the application and you should have the most current version of the BeReal application.
Most phones can be set up to automatically download and install updates so that you do not have to search for them manually. You will need to check your phone’s update settings to enable these settings on your device.
Fix 3 – Clear Your Cache to Get Rid of BeReal Bugs
How you clear your BeReal cache will depend on the type of device that you are currently using to access the application. The list below will walk you through the process for popular mobile devices and web browsers that are most commonly used to access BeReal.
If you are using Google Chrome to access BeReal, you will first need to click the three dots at the top right corner of your screen. This will bring up a menu where you can find the More Tools tab.
In the More Tools tab, you will find the option to Clear Browsing Data. Click this option and choose the All-Time option. Finally check the Cached Images & Files box and click Clear Data. This will successfully clear your BeReal cache in Google Chrome.
If you are using Firefox, you will first need to open the Firefox menu at the top of the screen. Navigate to the History tab and you will find the option to Clear Recent History. Click on Clear Recent History and approve the clearing of Everything and check the Cache box. Once this has been done click Clear Now and you will have successfully deleted your BeReal cache on Firefox.
If you are using an Android device to access BeReal, you will need to open your device’s Settings menu and then open the Apps menu. In the Apps menu, you will see the BeReal application. Tap into the BeReal application menu and select Storage.
In the Storage menu, you will find the option to clear all of your cache data related to the BeReal application.
If you are on an iPhone, you simply need to delete the BeReal application from your device and reinstall it to successfully clear the cache.
After you have successfully cleared your BeReal cache, the login issues that you are experiencing have a good chance of being automatically resolved. Keep in mind that these files will immediately begin to be replaced by new cache files. You should consider clearing your cache periodically as it begins to grow larger in size.
Fix 4 – Uninstall and Reinstall the App
When you are having trouble with your BeReal applications, a reinstall can help encourage the resolution of these errors and restart the application running fresh. This is a good solution for many problems people encounter using the BeReal application.
To reinstall the BeReal application, you will need to delete the application from your device completely. Once you have done this, you will have to re-download the applications from the app store and reinstall them on your device.
This will replace all of the files associated with the applications with new ones. This process will remove any damaged or corrupted files that were potentially causing your issues. You will not lose any of your account information by deleting the application from your device.
All of your data is tied directly to your account which means that as long as you can log in to the account that you were previously using, all of your BeReal videos, messages, and comments that you have saved will still be available for viewing.
This could also force an update of your application if the version of the application currently available in the app store is a more updated version than the one you had before.
Fix 5 – Contact BeReal Support
If you are experiencing many persistent issues with your BeReal application, you should consider contacting BeReal support so they can investigate your issue further.
You should only consider this once you have attempted all of the troubleshooting methods listed here, as BeReal support will likely suggest many of the methods on this list.
You can contact BeReal Support on their website or through the app. There you will find detailed instructions on how to report your issue. First, you will need to provide a detailed account of your problem which will then be investigated by someone at BeReal Technical Support.
BeReal Support will walk you through any potential troubleshooting methods that you might have missed and offer detailed suggestions on how to successfully solve your issue.
This method requires some patience, as dealing with customer service on the phone can be frustrating. Rest assured that BeReal Support will do all it can to get your application functioning properly.
Fix 6 – Wait For Them To Come Out With A Fix
In some cases, you will simply have to wait for BeReal to release a fix for your issue. This is more common with widespread issues that affect a large group of users on the app. When this happens, BeReal will be made aware of the issue and immediately begin working on a fix to release that will resolve the issue.
It usually does not take long for BeReal to release a fix for an issue once it has been made aware of it. The fix will be rolled out in an update for the application that will fix the errors that you may be experiencing.
You will need to be on the lookout for the update containing the fix if you have become aware of a widespread issue that people are experiencing on the BeReal application. This can be frustrating, but as previously stated, these issues are generally rare and are resolved quickly.
2. BeReal Is Down
One main reason you could be experiencing issues with your BeReal application is server issues at BeReal. If the servers are down, you will likely experience many issues with connectivity and functionality while using the app, including not being able to stay logged in properly.
Servers are what enable users to connect and communicate effectively through any type of social media application. Server outages are rare, however, and typically only happened during times of scheduled maintenance.
That being said, server overloads are possible and will cause you to not be able to access certain network features and will cause issues when trying to use the favorite button in the BeReal application. You can check the status of the BeReal servers on the website of their social media accounts.
Server outages are a widespread issue that affects many users of the BeReal application at once. You will have to wait for the server issues to be resolved before you will be able to use the BeReal application.
You will likely not be able properly to access your account during a server outage due to the application’s current inability to gather accurate data that matches your account. This will cause you to not be able to log in or use notifications properly.
Fix – Wait For BeReal To Go Back Up
If the BeReal servers are currently down, the only thing you will be able to do is to wait for the issue to be resolved. BeReal server outages are rare and typically only happen during short periods of required maintenance.
That being said, server overloads and crashes are still possible. Keep an eye out on BeReal’s website or social pages for more information regarding any ongoing server outages or scheduled maintenance.
You can expect server outages to be resolved within two hours. More severe server issues could cause the downtime to greatly exceed this estimation. For server overloads, the downtime you can expect is around five to six hours.
During BeReal server outages, you will likely not be able to stay logged in properly. Consider using another social media application in the meantime while BeReal works to resolve the server issues.
