How to Solve the “Your Profile Was Signed Out” Error in Modern Warfare 3

I’ve dealt with the issue once, and I personally know of a handful of players dealing with the “your profile was signed out” error in MW3, so here’s a handful of fixes to help you through the issue:

  • Check your internet connection. A poor internet connection is one of the most common causes of the “profile signed out” error affecting gameplay right now. In my case, it was because I had a wireless connection competing with every other device in my home. I invested in a wired connection (full DIY) and haven’t had the problem since.
  • Relaunch the game. Occasionally, it’s just a problem with the initial connection to the server, so closing out Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and relaunching the game helps to reestablish connection and get you into the fight!
  • Restart your system. If relaunching the game and checking the internet didn’t help, it’s time to restart the entire system. Whether you’re playing on a PC or console, a quick restart shouldn’t take too long, and it usually helps improve your connection overall with a fresh start.

Alternatively, and this is the piece of advice no one wants to hear, is to step away from Call of Duty for an hour or two. You could play something else in the meantime, like EA FC 24.

What Causes the Profile Signed Out Error in MW3?

The “your profile was signed out” error in Modern Warfare 3 is typically caused by your internet connection or the game’s servers. If it’s your connection, then you can generally resolve the issue in a few attempts with the handful of fixes we’ve provided.

Sadly, if it’s the game’s servers, there’s nothing to do besides waiting. It’s all on Activision and its studios to resolve the problem.

In the meantime, while you wait for server woes to resolve, may I recommend the best snipers to use in MW3?
