Too Many Requests on ChatGPT
ChatGPT has gained much popularity so many users try to use it to query something to get much fun. But according to some users, ChatGPT sometimes doesn’t function properly. When logging in to ChatGPT, you may receive the error 1020 access denied. When using ChatGPT, you may encounter the message an error occurred.
Sometimes you can experience another error during using ChatGPT – too many requests. To be specific, you can get the error message like:
“Too many requests, please slow down”
“Too many requests in 1 hour. Try again later.”
The too many requests error means the number of queries sent to ChatGPT in 1 hour has exceeded the limit. It can be triggered if you send too many requests at once or send quests too quickly. Besides, if the request is too complex for the AI to handle, ChatGPT can return the error – too many requests.
