If Roblox Error Code 524 error has occurred for you then it means you are not authorized to access the Roblox game that you are trying to play. This error code 524 in Roblox is commonly known as an authentication error. When you try to play a game that is specifically made for a group of users (VIPs) and not for the guest players. If you try to login into the game as a guest or directly without any login then the error might stop you from entering without the required authentication. This is authentication error 524.
Here in this post let me explain to you how to solve this authentication error and play the game on the VIP server. It only takes 5 mins to try out all the mentioned steps.
Why Roblox Error Code 524 appears?
As I mentioned earlier this error can also be referred to as an authentication error. Authentication error simply means you don’t have the rights to access the server that you are trying to access. If you are trying to access a server that is specifically created for a group of people to play as a VIP server. So in order to access the server, you must have the required authentication.
If you feel that you have the required authentication to enter the server and you are seeing this error by mistake then you might have tried to log in to the server without logging in to your Roblox account. Only if you have logged in to the account Roblox can confirm you as an authenticated user for the server and allow you to play the game.
Note: Mere logging into your Roblox account won’t help. You should be really authorized to use the game server.
Some users have complained in the forum that this error occurs only because of the unstable internet connection. But this not completely true. Because this error states that when you don’t have the required authentication to log in to the game. Even if you try to change the internet connection you will still the same error. Some game owners will let only a handful of selected users play their game. If you are one among them then you can try to access the game or else the game server won’t let you in no matter what.
How to solve the error 524 in Roblox?
I have found three solutions regarding this issue. Let me guide you through it. Don’t miss a line and read completely so that you may not miss the solution.
- Get the invite for the game
The first and foremost thing you should do is to get access to the game. You can either get access from the game owner itself or you can ask the friends to send you an invite if they already access to the VIP server. This way you can get yourself to make a way to the game. Below I have shown the steps to send a request for the game invite.
Steps to get the game invite:
- Open the Roblox and head to the game you need access to.
- In the game, go to the settings page.
- There you can see a label “Who can invite me to a VIP server”
- The default selected value will be “Friends”. Please change that one to “Everyone”
- Hit apply to save the changes.
- Now you can request any of the game players to send you an invite even if he is not on your friend list. Even strangers too.
- The boring part about this that you have to wait until the person accepts your invite.
- Once accepted, enjoy the game.
Also, don’t forget to invite the others once you got accepted.
- Login to the authenticated ID:
You need to check the ID that you have used to login to Roblox. If you have used an ID that is not associated with the game then the game might not let you enter the VIP server. So make sure to login with the ID that you are authorized to play the game. If you have purchased the game through an ID then you have to use that ID.
- Uninstall and install Roblox
Sometimes any of the above problems might not be there and the real issue might be with the Roblox installation. So you have troubleshot the installation once. Check the settings of the Roblox and if you have made any changes to it revert back to the default settings. Just try entering the game again. If you can enter the game then the problem is with the settings that you have recently. So keep up the default settings and don’t change that again.
If you still have a problem with entering the server then follow the fourth step.
- Create your own Roblox server
Even if the game server is made especially for a particular group of people you can create a server for yourself and join the game. Below I have mentioned all the steps to create your own Roblox server. You can create a VIP server just like the one you are trying to enter into.
- Firstly open the Roblox.
- Open the game which you are planning to play.
- To create your own server you need to invite at least five of your Roblox gamers into it.
- Now you have your own server. Try leaving the game and joining in again. It works perfectly.

Hope the above instructions helped you to solve error 524 in Roblox. Once you start working on it you can easily find workarounds and use Roblox to its fullest.
Here let me answer some of the most frequently asked questions.
- Can we prevent other users from entering our own game servers?
Yes, of course, you can do it. You can give your server VIP status so that only you and your friends who are invited alone can use this game server.
- What causes the error 523 in Roblox?
If the game admin has removed the game from the server or made the game private then the error 523 occurs in the game.
