    Thanks for letting us know about this, and I'm sorry for any trouble this has caused you. Could you let me know what OS version you're using and what version of Geekbench you're running on it (e.g. Geekbench 4.2.0)?

    An active internet connection is required to run a benchmark on your device. Is your device in Airplane/Flight Mode during the benchmark?

    All the best,

    I‘m facing the same problem on 2 devices running iOS 11.2 I installed the app on, and of course both are connected to the internet.

    iPhone 6s Plus running 11.2 has the same error. Just bought the app and can’t get a score.

    Thanks again for contacting us about this. There was an issue preventing access to the Geekbench Browser over the past ~60 minutes, which we've now resolved. We appreciate your patience with this issue, and we'll do our best to ensure that this kind of thing doesn't happen again in the future.

    If you have any further trouble running and uploading benchmarks, please let me know and I would be happy to help out.

    The issue that Anand was having with the OnePlus 5T should be unrelated to the unusual issue today. Anand, would you mind confirming if you're still experiencing this problem?

    All the best,
    Primate Labs Inc.

    Hi Norbert,

    Thanks for reaching out to us, and I'm sorry for any trouble caused by this issue. The Geekbench Browser was down today, approximately 2 hours ago, for 10 minutes. Any interruption on the Browser itself or in the Geekbench app should now be cleared. Could you let me know if you're still experiencing this problem?

    All the best,
    Primate Labs Inc.

    Same problem. iPhone 6s, connected to internet (tried WiFi and LTE). CPU bencmark runs for ~3.5 minutes and then "Cannot connect to Browser."

    Same problem, iPhone SE, with 11.2.1 "Cannot connect to Browser" after CPU bencmark. Look like the issue still there.

    Same issue on a 6s running 10.3.3. Tried rebooting device, un/reinstalling the app, and running on both wifi and mobile data with no change. Runs CPU benchmark through to the end, then shows the browser error.

    I'm getting the same issue on an iPhone 8, with the latest app. I don't think it's a very good design to prevent the user form seeing their benchmark score because *your* service is unavailable. Do you guys believe that is fair for the end user? Why not allow the user to see their score now and connect at a later time? Why not design the service so that it scales whenever there is increased demand? I paid for this application I expect it to work.

    Thanks for reaching out to us about this, and I'm sorry for any trouble that was caused by this problem. The Geekbench Browser was down for emergency maintenance for approximately 2 hours last night, which was likely responsible for this issue. Could you let me know if this problem is still occurring?

    I'll pass along your feedback regarding the lack of service last night to my team and see if we can improve our infrastructure to avoid this problem going forward. In the past, it's been very unusual for the Browser to experience downtime, and our goal is for no user's benchmark to be interrupted by this kind of problem.

    Created new discussion about the Geekbench 4 app, since this discussion is for the Geekbench website function.

    We're still experiencing intermittent issues with the Geekbench Browser -- we had approximately 15 minutes of unexpected downtime earlier today. We're hoping to resolve them over the next few days. In the meantime we apologize for the inconvenience and the frustration this is causing everyone.
