Solution 1: Check Klarna Server Status

Klarna has faced outages before, and there is a good possibility that it might be facing downtimes now. We suggest you check Downdetector to check if Klarna is down.

However, if Klarna is up and running fine, let’s try a few more methods to troubleshoot and resolve the issue.

Solution 2: Restart Your Device

A simple yet effective starting point is to restart your device. This basic troubleshooting step can resolve minor glitches and improve your device’s performance, ensuring a smoother operation of Klarna.

Here’s how you can restart:

  1. To turn off your device:
    • For iPhone X and later models: Press and hold the volume down button along with the side button.
    • For iPhone SE (2nd or 3rd generation), 7, and 8: Press and hold the side button.
    • For iPhone SE (1st generation), 5s, 5c, or 5: Press and hold the top power button.
  2. Slide to power off when prompted and wait for about 30 seconds.
  3. Power your device back on by holding the power button until the logo appears.

Solution 3: Toggle Airplane Mode

Toggling Airplane Mode on and off can refresh your device’s network connections, which might solve the crashing issue:
