If you try to log in to Grand Theft Auto 5 Online and instead get the error message “Your profile is not authorized to access GTA Online,” it can be annoying. Fortunately, this has been happening for years, and there are solutions. Here are some workarounds that can get you back into GTA Online.
The GTA Online permissions error usually occurs when you try to log into the game with an account that no longer has online access. More often than not, this happens when someone unknowingly allows their Xbox Live Gold subscription and then tries to play GTA Online. If this is the case, if you’re on a console but no longer have a Gold or PlayStation Plus subscription, we’ve already solved that problem. It’s time to re-register.
