How to Fix Poor Connection Issue & SSL Error in Clubhouse App



How do you like to listen in an online conversation without feeling insecure that you are not welcome? It does feel creepy and unethical if you eavesdrop on other people talking. But, it does not look unpleasant if they also want you to hear everything.

That’s what the Clubhouse app is about! It’s a new type of mobile social media network based on voice which is often called Drop-in Audio Chat. It showcases live conversations between users, famous or not, while you can just join in and listen without saying anything. You can also join if there is a chat available, but everything is done in audio form.

Users are becoming ecstatic with the fresh idea of the Clubhouse app. It is unique and entertaining at the same time. You can download, install, and use it on your iPhone or Android phone. But, there are issues that users still may encounter along the way that causes the app not to work.

You may see the error message, “Poor connection. Try to find a stronger signal.” Some users encounter an SSL error when using a cellular data instead of a WiFi connection with the error message “An SSL error has occurred and a secure connection to the server cannot be made.”
