- Create a new Activision account
Let us talk about them in detail.
1] Relink your Activision account
First of all, we need to unlink and relink the Activision account. One of the reasons why you get this is some temporary glitches or if the connection has expired. In either case, just removing the connection and then adding it will do the trick. Follow the steps given below to unlink and then relink the Activision account.
- Navigate to callofduty.com which is the official website of Call of Duty.
- Now, click on LOGIN and enter your credentials to sign in.
- Once you have logged in to your account, click on your Username and select LINKED ACCOUNTS.
- You will get the whole list of services that you have linked to.
- Click on the Unlink button of the service you are unable to connect to.
- Once you have unlinked the account, link it again.
Finally, check if the issue is resolved.
2] Check if there is an issue with your browser
It is also very likely that your browser’s caches are corrupted or that there is an extension that’s causing this issue. To check what’s responsible for this error, there are two things that you can do, open your browser in Incognito or Private mode, or use a different browser.
Incognito or Private mode allows the browser to open without any extension. If you can link your account, disable all of your extensions and then enable them manually to find out what’s causing the issue. Once you know the culprit, remove it, and your issue will be resolved.
3] Create a new Activision account
If nothing worked, your last resort is creating a new Activision account. It is pretty easy to do the same, just go to s.activision.com/activision/signup, enter the required details and sign up. This will do the job for you.
We hope that you have resolved the issue using the solutions mentioned here.
