There is definitely a joy to be found in whiling away the hours playing some Roblox. But sometimes, instead of joy, we get frustrated because we are having issues connecting or running the game. But do not fret, as we are here to help. We are looking at Roblox error code 273 and ways to fix it.
Players of the game have definitely been having some problems, Roblox lag for example, but there are errors which seem to pop up randomly and these seem to be the harder to address and fix.
But that doesn't mean there aren't a few things we can do when Roblox error code 273 pops up, so let's look at them.
How to fix Roblox error code 273
The problem might be related to someone else using your account to log in to the game so, in the case of better safe than sorry, you might want to go ahead and change login credentials. Here's how to do it:
- Log in to the account and go to the Settings page (the gear icon in the upper right);
- Go to Account Info and Change Password (the pen icon);
- Enter the current password and choose a new (strong) password;
- Save changes and exit the settings.
Try then to log out, reboot your PC and log in to Roblox again. If that hasn't worked, you might want to force a log out of all the devices that are currently logged in to Roblox, here's how you do it:
- Log in to the Roblox account and go to the Settings page;
- Click Security in the left menu and scroll out until you see the "Secure Sign-out" tab.
- Click Sign Out and press OK at the confirmation.
Finally, if this still hasn't worked, perhaps the problem is with your Internet connection or router. In that case, we recommend rebooting the router, restarting your PC, and then trying to log in again.
What is Roblox error code 273?
This error pops up when trying to connect to a Roblox match, usually displaying the following error message: "Disconnected from the game, possibly due to the game joined from another device".
Sometimes you might also get a similar message: "Same account launched experience from a different device. Reconnect if you prefer to use this device".
The error definitely seems to relate to the account using two connections to log in to a Roblox game at the same time. The issue might also happen if you just got disconnected from a server but, because of lag, the game thinks that connection is still active. Waiting definitely helps, in that case.
