General FAQ

Octo Browser freezes on launch

There are several reasons why this may occur:

  1. Unstable connection. Try connecting your device to another network or using your mobile Internet connection.
  2. Connection using a VPN. Try running Octo Browser without the VPN.
  3. Some providers may incorrectly resolve DNS. Try changing the DNS to Cloudflare /
  4. Connection via TOR is not supported.

Other solutions for Mac when working with Octium

  • Make sure your account has administrator privileges
  • Try downloading and installing a fresh build from the official website.
  • Try disabling the firewall.
  • Clear the components folder and restart the client. To do this, open launchpad, type terminal in the search box, in the window that appears, type cd ~/.Octo\ Browser/, press Enter (this should bring you to the Octo Browser directory). Once in the directory, delete the "bin" folder. To do this, enter the command rm -rf bin in the same window. Restart the client, and the browsercomponents will be downloaded again.
