Technical difficulties on login

★★ Novice



since yesterday I have the problem that i cannot login into my Origin account. I always get this error: "We're sorry, but we're having some technical difficulties. Please try again later.".

I contacted the EA support already three times and they always weren't able to help me. It mostly ended by just saying, that they can't help me.

So I am hoping that someone here had the problem too, and maybe has a solution for me. Standard smile



-I cannot login into any account on my pc or laptop (I tried different ones)

-I cannot login in the origin app or origin web

-I can login on my phone in origin web (uses the same network as my pc)

-I recently created new accounts

-Changing the IP did not work

-It worked with VPN for a short time, not anymore. (I can still login, but the pages won't load in the app)

→I can login in my account in origin web through VPN

-I personally didn't change anything that could have caused this issue


Thanks in advance Standard smile

Sorry to hear that you are having issues @GE_Hubit.

Can I ask whereabouts you are located? That it let you log in on a VPN means that his could be an issue with your network or another restriction.

I live in Germany, near Cologne.

It worked for me, from the Ukraine(through the VPN).

But as already mentioned, I can log in through VPN but I can't use the client, since the pages won't load.

For everyone, who might have the same problem, I found out, that this worked for me:


  1. Close all origin processes through the task manager
  2. Turn of your router for ~ 5 minutes
  3. Open the explorer and check the option to show hidden files and folders
  4. Delete the "Origin" folder in C:\ProgrammData\
  5. Delete the "Origin" folder in C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\
  6. Delete the "Origin" folder in C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\

It worked perfectly fine for me.

Is it possible to use another network to try and connect, for example can you set your phone as a hot spot and connect using that to see if it allows you to log in? The more info we have in relation to an issue such as this the better.
