How to Fix “No Internet Connection” on CapCut

Are you getting a “No internet connection. Connect to the internet and try again” error on the CapCut app?

CapCut is the official video editor and maker for TikTok.

It is developed by Bytedance Pte. Ltd., the company that made TikTok.

It has video editing, text, stickers, filters, colors, music, and more.

In addition, you can add keyframe animation, slow-motion effects, chroma key, Picture-in-Picture (PIP), and stabilization.

Unfortunately, a lot of users are unable to use the app because there is no internet connection.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to fix “No internet connection” on CapCut so that you can edit videos on the app.

Why is there no internet connection on CapCut?

No internet connection on CapCut

There is no internet connection on CapCut because the app is banned in your country/region.

Since the app is owned by Bytedance, it is banned along with TikTok in some countries.

Countries like India, Russia, and Indonesia might not be able to download the app.

Users can still access the app if they installed it before it was banned on the App Store/Google Play Store.

However, they won’t be able to access the features of the app like editing.

If you try to use certain features, the app will say “No internet connection. Connect to the internet and try again” even though you have an active internet connection.

How to Fix “No Internet Connection” on CapCut

To fix no internet connection on CapCut, you need to download a free VPN app on the App Store or Google Play Store.

After you’ve installed a VPN app, connect to a VPN where the app is not banned (e.g. Japan).

  1. Download a free VPN app.
  2. Connect to Japan or the Philippines.
  3. Force close CapCut and reopen it.

The app is not banned in countries like Japan and the Philippines.

It’s also available in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

Some free VPN apps are—VPN Fast – Secure VPN Proxy, VPN – Super Unlimited Proxy, and Proton VPN.

After you’ve connected to a free VPN, make sure to force close CapCut and reopen it.

That way, the app will be able to detect that you’re in another country.

A VPN will mask your IP address and location, so you’ll be able to bypass restricted features on the app.

Hence, you’ll be able to use all of the features on the app without getting the “No internet connection” error.
