The solutions are quite simple and might require you to download an additional application.

Method 1: Reinstall & Reboot

Well, this is a fairly simple process. We have all done it at some point in our life when an application goes rogue or just ceases to function. Go to your recent apps menu and remove the FaceApp and launch it again. Once it’s cleared from your device’s RAM, the phone has to launch the application again thus giving it a fresh launch.

If this doesn’t work, go to your device Settings and search for Apps. Click on FaceApp. Go to Storage and clear the cache and the storage. Now go back and tap on Force stop. This way, the app will launch as if it were installed a few seconds ago.

If this too doesn’t work, uninstall the app then and reboot your phone. Download the FaceApp again. If these options still don’t work for you, proceed to the next step.

Method 2: Virtual Private Network

Virtual Private Network makes the Internet a safe place to browse and also jump any restrictions your ISP has put. Even in the case of FaceApp, you can install a reliable VPN and go past the errors if they are related to your network. There are a lot of free VPN applications that provide you unlimited usage.
