We have been trying out so many things with our PC– I did a lot! The error might have occurred due to things tried by us. There is also a chance that the cause is something beyond our choices- Server and faulty internet. Let’s figure out the most probable cause of error code 268.

1. Interference by cheat engine/exploit software: 

One of the most severe reasons for “Error Code 268” on Roblox is the use of cheat engines or exploit software for hacking. Roblox continuously updates the game to be free from the interference of such cheat engines and exploit software. So, your game can be blocked after such updates, and you will face the “Error Code 268” issue.

2. Third-party interference: 

If you are using third-party software like an Antivirus and a VPN, you might face the “Error Code 268” issue. This third-party software may mistakenly identify the game as malware which makes them block the connection between the game and its server. This leads to “Error Code 268”.

4. Personal Settings in internet options: 

If you are using Internet Explorer to play the game, internet explorer stores game data in your device as a cache. This cached data might get corrupted, leading to ‘Error Code 268’.
