The Fortnite ‘Failed to Download Supervised Settings’ error is pretty common. Luckily, it has a straightforward fix, as players simply need to turn off their system, unplug the power cord, wait a few minutes, plug the power back in, and turn the device on again. It’s more common on consoles, but can also be experienced on PC.

This should fix the problem, but if you’re still experiencing issues, you may need to follow these steps:

  • Disconnect the system you play Fortnite on from the internet
