Failed to Download Supervised Settings Fortnite Error Fix

The first thing to note is that this could be a server issue and you should check the @FortniteStatus Twitter account to see if the problem is widespread. If that doesn’t show any issues, keep reading for our fixes.

For some reason, this issue seems to skew towards mainly affecting Fortnite players on consoles. There are a couple of easy fixes that shouldn’t take up too much of your time and get you right back into the game.

Fix 1

Your first option is to shut down and restart your console. This means on Xbox you will need to select Full Shut Down in the Power Mode & Startup section of the settings menu if your console would otherwise simply suspend.

If for some reason this doesn’t quite do the trick, once your console is off, fully unplug it. This shouldn’t be necessary, but it’s an alternative.

Fix 2

Your other option is to temporarily disconnect your console from your network. Even if you are on a wired connection you can still entirely turn off your connection on PlayStation. Xbox gives the Go Offline option that serves the same purpose.

If you don’t quite want to do that on PlayStation, choosing to Test Internet Connection will also briefly disconnect your console and reconnect it. This is an easier solution if you want something quick.

Either of these options should solve your problem. Now just relaunch Fortnite and you should be able to connect to the game without any issues.

That’s everything you need to know for how to fix the Failed to Download Supervised Settings error in Fortnite. When you’re back in the game, make sure you are progressing your Paradise Discord quests as that is set to end in a few days. We also have the full list of week two quests to help you rack up XP.
