Genshin Impact Parameter Error: How to Fix
By Jack O'Dwyer
Genshin Impact has been throwing a Parameter Error at players attempting to get back into their accounts.
Genshin Impact's latest attempts to implement an anti-cheat software may be locking some players out of their account, according to players being faced with the error. Several have already reported unsuccessful attempts to re-access their accounts after either switching devices or logging-in post-maintenance.
Here's everything you need to know about a parameter error and how to fix it.
Genshin Impact Parameter Error
A parameter error is a digital blockade of sorts that prevents users from accessing their data from another device—for example, a flash drive or external hard drive. There are several causes of this error, including driver issues, file corruption, and malware invasion. True to form, Genshin Impact will throw a parameter error when players are attempting to access their account data from the server.
Developer miHoYo has yet to officially comment on this error, so no verified fix is currently available. However, some players have reported success using the following methods:
- Restarting the application
- Restarting the device
- Unlinking and re-linking the connected e-mail account
- Logging-out and re-logging into the connected e-mail account
Others have been able to fix the error by double-checking their passwords and/or user input on the log-in screen. In a post on the Genshin Impact subreddit, Reddit user elsingo explained how they found an empty space sitting in their username input bar that threw off their attempts—essentially making their username incorrect.
Those looking to fix this error should be aware that methods may vary in process and success rate between devices.
