Rocket League Season 4 brought a ton of changes and new content with it, but, unfortunately, it also brought a new error. For the past week, players have been receiving a "Duplicate Login Detected" error message that have resulted in people being kicked out of games and with some even receiving brief bans. Have you received the error or just want to know what to do if you get it in the future? Here's what you should know:

This error tends to pop up in two places: upon logging in or after a match ends. Sometimes it can happen to players mid-game, though it's much less common. Nevertheless, the error, although annoying, can be fixed pretty easily.

How to fix Rocket League "Duplicate Login Detected" error?

First, players should confirm that they are the only player logged into their account. If they have shared their password or logged in elsewhere in the past then they should change their password. After that logout of Rocket League (even if you didn't reset your password), log back in, and see if those steps have resolved the issue.

If the issue persists, players should completely reboot their system (not just put it in sleep or rest mode). After their system reboots players should try logging onto Rocket League once again to see if they can play regularly now. If the error is still not fixed then delete the Rocket League application, reinstall it, and try again.

If, after all these steps, the problem is still ongoing then players should go to Rocket League's Support page for help and contact a representative.
