How to Fix the Chipotle App When It’s Not Working?

Delays when ordering your dinner can be quite inconvenient, particularly with Chipotle. If the issue is on Chipotle’s end, you have the option to cancel your order and look for quicker and more efficient services. However, if the problem is on your end, it is vital to troubleshoot and address any potential issues in a timely manner.

Chipotle App Not Working

Most often, the application fails to work properly if it’s under maintenance or when the servers are down. In such instances, the only recourse is to wait it out. At other times, problems such as a poor internet connection or an overloaded cache can cause hindrances.

To verify if it’s a connectivity issue, test your internet speed or switch to a different network. To address cache-related issues, try accessing the Chipotle website from your browser. If it works there, the issue might be with your device or the application itself. Below are some fixes to consider.

1. Turn Off the VPN (If Applicable)

Chipotle operates in specific locations, such as the US, UK, Canada, Germany, and France. If you’re using a VPN, it can change your IP address to servers outside of these locations, causing the app to malfunction. Disabling the VPN can remedy this issue.

  1. Go to the VPN app and disconnect from there.
  2. Alternatively, access Settings and toggle off VPN.
    disable VPN

2. Restart the App

Restarting the app can resolve temporary glitches either in the device or the app itself.

  1. Long-press the app tile and select App info.
  2. In the settings, tap Force stop.

  3. Alternatively, swipe up from the bottom of the screen and locate the Chipotle app preview.
  4. Swipe up to close the app.
