Troubleshooting Steps

1. Ensure that your computer meets the minimum requirements for using Boostlingo.

2. Make sure you are using a recommended browser: Google Chrome, MS Edge, or Firefox.

3. Ensure that your browser is up-to-date:

4. Make sure that camera and microphone access are enabled in the browser:

5. If you have a VPN enabled, disable the VPN.

6. Hard refresh your browser.

  • On PC: hold down Ctrl + Shift + R.
  • On Mac: hold down ⌘ Cmd and ⇧ Shift and press R.

7. Clear the cache and cookies in your browser. 

8. Turn your computer off and on again. It seems simple, but it clears out any frozen processes that might be bogging down your computer.

9. Check your network and signal strength. Do other websites load? Run the network test at

Note: A network that initially passes the speed test may still experience moments of slow connection. 

10. Run the Twilio network test to ensure that your system is not blocking the calls: https://networktest.twilio.comIf the Twilio test fails it is most likely because of firewall settings or, in the absence of a firewall, other blocks put in place by your Internet Service provider. Please locate the current list of IP addresses for your region: Firewall Provisioning Documents – Boostlingo

11. If using a headset, test calls with vs. without your headset. 

12. Determine if your computer is operating slower than usual.

  • On PC: open the Task Manager (Ctrl + Shift + Esc). Are any of the metrics running over 60-70%?
  • On Mac: open the Activity Monitor (Command + Spacebar, type “Activity Monitor”, when Activity Monitor appears in the results hit Return). Check Your CPU, Memory and Disk usage. Is anything running high?

13. If you have completed the steps above and the issue is still not resolved, please try using a different reccommended browser.
