How To Fix “This App Is No Longer Shared With You” Bug

This app is no longer shared iOS bug on iPhone

This app is no longer shared iOS bug on iPhone.

Are you trying to open apps on your iPhone or iPad and are prompted with the “This app is no longer shared with you” error message? You’re not the only one! A series of iOS users have experienced this problem over the weekend and have mailed us to ask for a fix. There’s a multitude of apps that seem to be affected by this issue including the most popular ones like YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, TikTok and more.

The issue doesn’t seem to be caused by a bug coming with the the newly released iOS 13.5, because the same problem is surfacing for users that haven’t updated yet and are still running iOS 13.4.1 or later. However, the problem seems to be triggered after an app is updated. As soon as some users update an app in the App Store, they’re flashed with “This app is no longer shared with you” prompt. There are two available options to move on, “View in App Store” or “Cancel”. The first one re-directs you to the app’s App Store page. When you click “Open” the prompt appears again and the user is stuck in a loop. Cancelling will simply close the prompt and prevent the iPhone from opening the app.
