There are a few methods available for this problem but you should know that it may as well be the problem with Ubisoft websites or their servers. If the servers are not to blame, you might find other helpful methods below!

What Causes the Ubisoft Login Error?

The error is often caused by your browser cookie settings. Ubisoft, as many other sites and companies, uses cookies to store certain data important for them and you must enable the use of third-party cookies in order to get rid of the Ubisoft login error when navigating to their sites or using their programs.

Another problem which may cause the error is having an old networking driver which can’t support Ubisoft’s servers. This is a rare occurrence but you should know it’s possible as it has happened to people online!

Fix for Software Problems – Update Your Network Driver

  1. First of all, you will need to uninstall the network driver you currently have installed on your PC.
  2. Type “Device Manager” into the search field next to the Start menu button to open the Device Manager utility. You can also use the Windows Key + R key combination in order to start the Run dialog box. Type “devmgmt.msc” in the box and click OK or Enter key.
