League of Legends: How To Fix “Your Session Has Expired” Error

Many people are experiencing the “Your session has expired” error in League of Legends. If you encounter this, don’t worry. Here’s how you can fix this error.

Made by Riot Games, League of Legends is a massive online battle arena (MOBA) released in 2009. It is one of the most played online games of all time and features fast-paced gameplay alongside many champions to choose from.

As League is an online game, people worldwide must connect to a server to play. To not burden the server with unwanted load, Riot Games have an anti-AFK measure that kicks players idle in the lobby screen for a long time. The players who get kicked will receive an error message “Your session has expired.”

Normally, if the player stays active in the lobby screen, this issue does not occur. But recently, players are reporting that they have been kicked out of the game in the middle of the match, with the message “Your session has expired.” Not only that, it becomes extremely infuriating when it happens constantly.
