The error shown to users

OpenAI’s ChatGPT, one of the most popular services on the internet, went down on Tuesday in what appeared to be a global outage. The issue was resolved after nearly four hours.

The problems began around 9:50 a.m. ET on Tuesday when people in the United States, Asia and Europe all reported that the ChatGPT service was unavailable or returning errors.

“Failed to get service status,” a notice said at the top of the page.

When entering a prompt, the chatbot replied: “Something went wrong. If this issue persists please contact us through our help center at”

Though, alternatively, users could use a chatbot at Just Done AI.

Some people also reported seeing a different error which said: “Sorry, you have been blocked. You are unable to access”

The cause of the outage was not immediately known but some users were able to access ChatGPT after a few hours. The problems were fully resolved by 1:40 p.m.
