Roblox Error Code 524 can appear on your screen for several different reasons. It generally pops up when you are trying to join a VIP server. For commoners and guests to join a VIP server, there is a process they need to go through that we will discuss later in this guide.  It could also be possible that perhaps the server is slowing down due to an unknown bug or maybe you are too young to join that server. Some servers on Roblox are age-restricted meaning that you must be of a certain age to join that server and anyone below that age requirement will be banned from joining that server.

One more thing that could happen is that maybe the country you live in is blocked from joining the server. Certain games restrict the use of private servers in some countries. The last and most unfortunate reason could that your Roblox is bugged and would require reinstalling it.By now you must have understood the reasons why the error code 524 pops up when you are trying to join a VIP server. Understanding the cause of an error is the key point to solve an error. So, without further ado let’s learn how to fix this error.

As you have read above, there can be different reasons for the error to occur, and so there are multiple different methods and steps to fix this error. The first thing you can do is to open your invites from Roblox Settings in one of the many ways. To join a VIP server, you need an invitation from a player in that server, and to receive that invitation, you need to open your invitations from Roblox Settings.

Ask Someone to Send You an Invite to that Server

Now that you have allowed everyone to send you invites, all you need is someone who can join the VIP server and send you an invite. If you have a friend already there, it would be rather easy because you can ask them. If you do not have a friend, it is still ok; there are ways you can join the VIP. You will need to find a player’s username in that VIP server and request him to invite you.

  • Step 1: Click the game you want to join. (For example, Adopt me!)
  • Step 2: Go to the ‘Servers’ tab, and here you will be able to see the names of players on the private server.
  • Step 3: Send them a request and ask them to invite you
  • Step 4: Once you get the invitation. Click yes, and you are free to play the game as long as you wish.

If your problem is minor, this should be able to fix your error.

Changing Your Age

Changing your age is a somewhat harder option because you need to know your account pin. If you have not added any pin while making your account, then it would be easy. However, if you have a pin and you have forgotten it, you can do nothing but contact the Roblox support team and wait for their reply. To normally change your age these are the steps

  • Step 1: Press the setting icon on the top left bar and go to the settings
  • Step 2: Go to account info and change your birthdate to anything above 13
