The “502 Bad Gateway” error happens since the server, acting as a proxy or gateway, attempted to access the main server to fulfill the request it got and has received no or invalid response. Sometimes, incomplete or empty headers caused by server side issues or broken connections can cause the error when accessed through a proxy or gateway. Even certain apps that block pop up ads works via reverse proxy.
You may know how to block pop up ads on your web browser, though the “Bad Gateway” error can be annoying. Depending on the website or browser, the same error page can be shown differently with the 502 being the only constant. Sometimes, it can be shown as just 502 or Server Error as displayed on Google.
You have zero control over these errors since they are server side related. However, at times even your web browser can be tricked into showing the error so there are some steps to resolve it. Prior to starting with these troubleshooting steps for 502 Bad Gateway, make it a point to create a system restore point just in case anything goes wrong.
Wait for a few minutes and try reloading the web page, in which you encountered the Bad Gateway. Press Ctrl and F5 keys at the same time, with the browser tab open, as it bypasses the browser cache, and double-check in case the problem is fixed. In case this step did not help, then close all activities and reopen the browser. Proceed to the next step only if required.
Try opening the same site from a different browser. In case you are running into the same error page, then the problem may not be browser related. However, if you are seeing the error then it has got to do with your browser. It can be one of the Chrome browser issues also.
If Google Chrome is your browser, clear its cache. For that, follow the steps mentioned below.
You can quickly access the Chrome extensions page and decide whether deletion is required. After all, if an extension is unwanted you might as well delete it from Google Chrome.
This should fix the Bad Gateway error you were facing, but in case the issue persists, get in touch with our browser support professionals through the toll-free number for an advanced solution.
