Fix Error Code 273 in Roblox by Logging Out of all Roblox Sessions and Clearing Roblox's Cache.

Multiple Roblox players have been plagued by Error Code 273, an issue that has persisted for a few years. It occurs when several people are using the same account or when you are trying to rejoin a game too fast. So, if you have been stuck on the same error, I have some effective solutions to get you back to smooth sailing.

The error reads: “Same account launched the game from a different device. Reconnect if you prefer to use this device. (Error Code: 273)

Key Takeaways

Two best solutions I’d recommend to fix Roblox Error Code 273:

  1. Clear your Roblox Cache.
  2. Log out of all your Roblox Sessions.

Log Out Of All Roblox Sessions

Sometimes, Roblox servers can count your previous session, even in a browser, as active if closed unexpectedly. To get around this, I recommend logging out of all your sessions. Doing so has proven effective for many players and developers on the Roblox Forums and would also resolve potential log-in problems from other devices.

Below are the steps to do so:

  1. Go to the Roblox Website.
  2. In the upper right corner, Click on the Gears Icon > Click on Settings.

  4. Click on Log Out of All Other Sessions.

Expert Tip: Do take note of the places you are logged in. If you find one that doesn’t match, enable 2-Step Verification and consider Changing your Password.

Clear Roblox Cache

A bad cache always means trouble. What’s worse is that it can go bad pretty easily due to the constant overwrites. Because the problem stems from the servers thinking you are still logged in somewhere, the cause could be some broken code in your Roblox Client’s cache. 

You’ll have to clear the browser or app cache depending on how you play Roblox to resolve this issue. 

My Thoughts On Error Code 273

The amount of people affected by this error code in Roblox is pretty low, but it has been around for a few years. I came across a mega Roblox Dev thread for error code 273 where several roblox players are reporting and discussing this issue. 

Another instance of this error seems to be happening due to a teleport service in Roblox uses to move players within the game (across different servers).

At its core, the problem mostly comes from LUA, the programming language for Roblox. With how it works, some games teleport you to the starting position a bit too fast for the server to keep up.

In these cases, getting past it is as simple as logging in again. However, when that doesn’t do the trick, the abovementioned solutions will surely get you back in. 

FAQs
