The “Unmapped IG Error. This IG Error was not mapped to an Error Code. To fix it, update the Error tool under ‘CAA’ to map it to an Error Code” message seems to be popping up for users when they try to sign up or log in to their Threads account.

This error message prevents people from logging in to Threads.

2. Technical Issues with Instagram Threads

As a newly launched app, Threads may be prone to encountering bugs and glitches that may have completely been missed by the developers before launch.

This might be an example of a bug or glitch that has not been patched yet, which would explain why this error has not yet been mapped to an error code for the app.

2. Log In to Instagram Threads from Another Device

If the error still does not go away, you can try to log in to your Threads account from another device in case there is a problem with your current device.

To do so, you will have to download Threads onto your new device.

You can do this by following the directions to install it as given previously.

Open your Threads app after installing it on your new device so that you can log in to your account.

Once you have installed it, open the app to log in to your account.

3. Restart Your Internet Connection

If you are still facing issues with logging in to your Threads account, there might be an issue with your network connection.

To check your current network’s speed, you can run a speed test:

  1. Go to speedtest.net.
  2. Click on the “GO” button on your screen.
  3. Wait for the site to give you a report.
  4. Your ping rate will be shown next to the yellow arrows.
The speed test results will show you your network connection’s quality.

The ping rate will indicate how fast your network connection is.

While a ping rate below 100 ms is highly recommended, always remember: the lower the ping, the better the connection.

If you have a slow internet connection, you can try restarting your router or switching to a different network.

4. Report the Problem to Instagram

If none of the previous methods have worked, you might just have to wait and try again later.

Alternatively, you can try to report the issue to Instagram.

Instagram’s apps are highly intuitive so all you have to do to report it is shake your phone the moment you see the error again and then press on the Report a problem button.

The issue will then be reported to Instagram, and they will resolve it as soon as possible.
