Since its release back in September 2020, Genshin Impact has become one of the hottest games in the world, generating millions of dollars in revenue every day and often topping the charts of the App Store and Google Play Store.
Like everything though, it isn't free of problems and errors.
This is how to fix Error Code 4201.
What Is Error Code 4201
Error Code 4201 states "Failed to connect, please check your network settings."
When this happens players are unable to get into the game.
How To Fix Error Code 4201
The Error Code 4201 can be solved fairly easily, regardless of which platform you're on.
It is related to your internet settings and is usually resolved by double-checking that the device, whether it is mobile, console or PC, is connected to the internet.
Sometimes the internet just drops out and disconnects, or maybe your router is having issues, or even your internet is just completely down.
Another cause can be the use of a VPN.
Many people use VPNs these days and quite often it is easy to forgot that it is activated when trying to play a game.
Some games don't like VPNs being used and they can cause a lot of problems.
So if your internet is working fine, check if your VPN is on next.
Should all that fail, unfortunately, you may need to reinstall the game and then hopefully it will work.
The good news is, all of the save data is stored in the cloud, so you don't need to worry about accidentally wiping your save file.
