  • The game you’re trying to play is not letting players join it. The experience could be made private or currently closed for maintenance. In this case, join another game to see if the issue comes up.
  • Something might have gone wrong while you were logging in which will bring up the authentication failed message. Roblox servers could be down or the credentials could have mistakes. Check the details and sign in after a minute or two. If servers are down, wait until the downtime is over so you can log in without any issues.
