How to fix "You exceeded your current quota, please check your plan and billing details" error on ChatGPT

If you keep getting the "You exceeded your current quota, please check your plan and billing details" error message while trying to access ChatGPT, then you are not alone. Online forums such as Reddit and OpenAI community are filled with users facing this issue.

The ChatGPT "You exceeded your current quota, please check your plan and billing details" error should fix on its own, but in case this does not happen for you, try using a VPN as this Reddit user suggested.

What does "You exceeded your current quota, please check your plan and billing details" mean on ChatGPT?

Well, it simply means that you have used up the number of API requests that you are allotted for your current account or subscription plan on the ChatGPT service, and are no longer able to use the service until you either upgrade your plan or wait for your quota to reset.

The error message seems absurd as ChatGPT is currently free during the “research preview” time. The only reasonable explanation is that it is a bug. In fact, the President & Co-Founder of OpenAI Greg Brockman confirmed on Twitter that it is indeed a bug and the team is looking into it.
