Force Close Oura App On iPhone

Honestly, I deal with the Oura app glitches on my iPhone at least once a week. I’ve found that force closing is a handy fix for any app’s issues, not just Oura’s. I love it because it’s super easy and super effective. Here’s how you can do it too:

  1. Swipe up from the bottom of your iPhone screen and pause for a second. You’ll see all your running apps’ preview windows.

  1. Swipe left or right until you find the Oura app’s preview screen.
  2. Swipe the Oura app card upwards to dismiss it from your screen, like tossing it off the top.

  1. Now, tap on the Oura app icon to open it again. It should work properly now!

Force Close Oura App On Android

Force closing, or as Android calls it, “Force Stop,” is a straightforward fix I’ve used a couple of times. The great news is, Android offers not just one, but two methods to do this:

Method 1: Via Settings

Navigate through your device Settings to locate the Oura App and force close it from there. While effective for troubleshooting issues like the Oura Ring not connecting to Android, this method may necessitate a few additional taps.

Method 2: Using the App Icon (Even Simpler!)

This is my personal favorite method because it’s super quick and requires minimal steps. Let’s learn this method, as it will get your Oura App back on track in a flash!

  1. Find the Oura app icon on your phone’s home screen or in the app drawer.
  2. Hold down the icon until a menu appears.
  3. Tap App Info (or the info icon with an “i” inside a circle).

  1. Scroll down and tap Force Stop in the bottom left corner. Then, hit the OK button on the popup to confirm the action.

  1. That’s it! Now, go back to your home screen or app drawer, tap the Oura app icon to reopen it, and everything should be smooth sailing from here!

Still struggling with that annoying app problem? I understand. Sometimes, I can’t get an app to work, even after trying the usual Force Close trick. When that happens, I give my phone a break. I turn it off for a few minutes, let it cool down, then turn it back on. Giving my device a little rest helps me get rid of the annoying temporary files that cause problems.

But if switching the phone off and on again doesn’t work, I have another solution. The Oura customer support team is fantastic. They’ve helped me many times and are always ready to assist. Just go to the Oura Support page, and you’ll find an AI assistant ready to help. 

If the AI assistant doesn’t do the trick, I recommend sending a message directly to the support team. You can do this by clicking the link that says “Click here to contact Oura support team” at the bottom of the help articles.

Is It Safe To Force Close Oura App? 

As I mentioned, I close the Oura app once a week. Like many of you, I close all apps to keep my phone optimized. The other day, I closed Oura while it was syncing. Later, I noticed my morning walk data was missing. 

I wondered if it’s safe to close the Oura app. Generally, it’s not risky. You don’t need to keep it running all the time. Just open it now and then to sync your data. However, if you’re syncing and force close it, your data might get stuck, and you might have to start over.

If you link Oura to other health apps like Google Health Connect or Apple Health, closing it might interrupt the connection. So, if you want smooth integration, let the sync finish before closing apps.
