The login error was a server issue and as per the latest tweet has been fixed by Niantic. You can check out their tweet below:

Since this is a problem at their end, you can’t exactly fix it, but you can use this workaround to be able to play the game.

  • Set up alternate login: As suggested in the above tweet and as a general precaution, it is best you link your PTC to your other accounts. On their official Help page Niantic states that having multiple login providers can help you log in when one of them is down or facing issues. The accounts that you can link to your Pokemon GO account are:
    • Facebook
    • Gmail
    • Apple ID
  • You can link to the above accounts from in-game by:
    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Tap on Account.
    3. Under the Linked Accounts section, you will see all login provider options.
    4. Tap on the unlinked account that you want to use and log in to it.

Next time when PTC isn’t working you can sign in from your secondary login provider.

  • Restart the game: Sometimes a simple restart can help fix login issues. Simply close the game and remove it from your recent apps. Relaunch it and check if you can play.
  • Reinstall the game: At times restarting isn’t enough. Uninstall the game from your phone and install it again.
