Cause of Error 429

Your program may stop working and your server may slow down when you encounter 429 HTTP error. There are different types of error codes indicating the same 429 problem.

  • 429 Error
  • HTTP 429
  • Too Many Requests
  • 429 Too Many Requests
  • Error 429 (Too Many Requests)

Everything is fine until you see the 429 error responses from an API. It says you have made too many requests, hitting the rate limit of an API. The HTTP error 429 is actually an HTTP status code; it’s a client error that is sent back from server to signal to inform users that they have reached the rate limit allowed.

Encountering error 429 is a terrible experience, but it doesn't mean rate limiting is a bad thing. On the contrary, this limit is great; it can protect most consumable APIs from intentional and accidental abuse of services. You should know that the rate limits of widely used APIs including Twitter and Instagram are stricter than others.
