Apex Legends Mobile has had a soft launch recently. The game is currently available in ten countries around the world. The developers want to test all the game mechanics and other technical aspects before releasing Apex Mobile globally. And while the game is working mostly smoothly, there are some issues. Many players are experiencing the “You Are Not Licensed To Play” error message. Error Code 291 or Error Code 561 are usually appearing alongside this message. Why is this happening and how can you fix it? Read on to find out.
Apex Legends Mobile You Are Not Licensed To Play Error Code 291
As we’ve already mentioned, the “No License” error in Apex Legends Mobile is paired with Error Code 291 or Error Code 561. But, both essentially have the same meaning, and both issues are solvable in ways we will present to you below. In order to understand how to solve this problem, we first must know why it’s happening in the first place. And there are two reasons for it to occur.
The first reason is that you’ve downloaded the game’s APK file from an unofficial source. Many mobile games are lenient when it comes to installing them via APK files, but not Apex Mobile. Thus, here’s what you need to do:
- Delete the game from your device
- Make sure that Apex Legends Mobile cash is cleared as well (to prevent the flagging of your account)
- Download Apex Legends Mobile from the official Google Play page
By doing this, you will install Apex Legends Mobile in a regular way and you should no longer receive Error Codes 291 and 561. Another potential issue why are you receiving the “You Are Not Licensed To Play” error message in Apex Legends mobile is because you are trying to enter the game from an unsupported country. Check out the list of eligible countries here and see if yours is on the list. If not, you will need to wait until it becomes available. Alternatively, you can use a VPN service and try to “trick” the game by selecting one of the countries where Apex Legends Mobile is already available.
