How to Download and Install Parler on iPhone and Android?

Want to know how to download and install the Parler app on your Android or iPhone? In this guide, we show how you can get the Parler app in just a few steps.

 


UPDATE 15/2/2021 – The Parler Website is Online again!

That’s right, after it was publicly kicked off from the Internet by Amazon, the website is live again, 🥳! You can visit the Parler website and log in to your account. After that, everything should look familiar, including your feed.

However, currently, the app has not returned to the App Store or Play Store. So, the app should be up again, but we have no news on when or if that may happen.

For now, you can still enjoy the free unfiltered news through their website, just like before the ban.

You can save the Parler site to your homescreen and get a similar feel to the app version. We have steps for iPhones and iPads below. Do note, the site may seem buggy and you might face problems signing in. But we feel these issues are only temporary.

Don’t worry, your Parler account should still be intact with no data or follower loss. If you still notice something is missing on your profile, we suggest contacting Parler support

Currently, the only way to reach out to Parler is through their Feedback form: 

  1. From the Parler website, at the left pane, select Feedback.contact or give feedback to Parler support

 

  1. On the Feedback form, choose your Issue, then describe your Parler account issue.
  2. Finally, select submit.contact or give feedback to Parler support

 

Right now, that’s all we know about the Parler app issue. We’ll continue posting Updates when we get more news.

So, do you have any problems or issues with Parler now? Let us know in the comments, and we’ll try to respond to the best of our abilities 😁.


 

If you’ve been following the recent news, one story you might’ve come across is Parler getting banned🚫. In simple terms, it got booted off the major app stores (Google, Apple, Amazon), due to recent US political events. You can read more about this on major news networks📰, like CNN and Forbes.

Ironically, all this controversy around Parler has only served as marketing for the app, igniting people’s curiosity for the social platform. Even we couldn’t hold back to take a quick gander.

At first glance, it may leave you wondering:

 


What is Parler?

Basically, Parler was intended as a “free speech” social networking platform, where users can get their news and interact with other users. Thus, Parler is sort of like Twitter 🐦, where Tweets are known as Parleys.

Nonetheless, we’ve found that not all news shared on the platform is political. In fact, we’ve spotted some notable Gaming, Sports accounts and various other niches as well.

However, any platform that promotes unfiltered free speech 💬 is bound to hold some opinions that’ll make you go “Woah! Back up”.


 

So, whether you’re a long-time fan of Parler or simply want to take a peek, you might wonder “How to get Parler?”. 

Well currently, definitely not through the app stores. If you try visiting the Parler app page in the Google Play Store, you’ll receive the “Item not found” message.item not found google play store error message

 

Whereas in the Apple App Store, you’ll be prompted with the “App Not Available” message.App not available apple app store error message

 

We aren’t entirely sure when Parler will be back on the app stores.

However, till then, this guide should help you download and install the Parler app on Android or iPhone/iPad.

Steps to Download and Install Parler on Android

For Android devices, you can easily install just about any app, using its APK file. So, say a temporary goodbye to the Play Store, as you’ll only need a source for the Parler APK file.

For this, we recommend 2 options, primarily the official Parler site or Aptoide, a third-party app store. That way, if Parler temporarily takes down the file for some odd reason, you can check out Aptoide instead.

Method 1: Downloading Through the Official Parler Website

As the safer option, we recommend downloading the Parler APK file available on their own site.

  1. First, from your web browser app, visit the Parler website.
  2. Then, scroll all the way down, and tap the Android icon to download the APK file.how to download and install parler on Android

 

  1. After that, at the “Download file“ prompt, tap Download. Then, select OK at the following warning message.how to download and install parler on Android

Steps to Use Parler on iPhone and iPad

Sadly, unlike on Android, installing apps from third-party sources on iOS devices are more restricted. This is thanks to Apple doubling down on the security of their devices.

Therefore, unless you’ve installed the Parler app before the ban (or somehow have a time machine? 🤯), currently, you can’t get the original app.

But thankfully, the website, Parler.com, is still up and running. Plus, it’s perfect for use whether you’re on a PC or mobile device like your iPhone. 

On that note, we propose that you save the Parler webpage to your home screen, giving you the same feel of the app.

So, to save Parler as a bookmark on your Home screen:

  1. First, visit Parler.com from your web browser app, preferably Safari.
  2. After that, tap the Share button on the bottom bar.how to get parler on iPhone and iPad

 

  1. Then, from the Share menu, select Add to Home Screen.how to get parler on iPhone and iPad

 

  1. On the next page, tap Add at the upper-right.how to use parler on iPhone and iPad

 

And Voila! The Parler “app” or bookmark should appear on your home screen, and you can just tap to open it.

 

 

Conclusion

To recap, despite Parler’s recent exile from the major app stores, there are still workarounds to get it. In this guide, we show quick and easy steps to get Parler for both Android and iOS.

Now all you need is to sign up for a Parler app, to use it, which is simple and guided. Also, you’ll need to use your phone number to create an account, perhaps as an anti-spam measure.

Overall, this should take you 2 minutes tops. Then, you can begin browsing through the sea of Parleys.

  1. I had a Parler app on Friday. and it worked but bought a new phone on Saturday have not been able to get back on.

  2. I kept the Parler app on my iPad Pro and I was able to log in, but nothing would show up. Deleted the app and used the process above which prompted me to login, which I did, but all I got was a blank screen.

    The Parler Android app on my Android phone and access on my Windows laptop using Chrome, bot work fine.

    • Hi Anne,

      According to other users’ reports, their existing Parler app isn’t working either and giving errors. For now, we’ll suggest temporarily using their website instead which works perfectly fine.

  3. I have the Parler app on my iPhone from before it was blocked. Will I still be able to use it as is when Parler is back? I heard it was back today but when I tried to access it I still received the same error message. Is there a change I need to make on my iPhone or is Parler really not back yet?

    • Hi Karen!

      Since the Parler app isn’t up on the App Store or Play Store yet, perhaps the existing app is still down and having errors. You can still visit their website which works perfectly fine.

    • Hi Linda!

      At the Parler website or homepage, you should see the “create new account” button.

      After clicking that, it’s pretty straightforward. Simply enter your details and agree to their policies.

      Then, you should be good to go!
