If you get that error, there are things that could go wrong. For example, the displacement of the Obb of the game – in case you have downloaded the APK – or the game license problem. But in most of the cases, the first one is the cause.
First method. Reclaim the license.
In some cases, this error is caused by a license problem. The best solution is to reclaim the license. For this, you need to go to the Google Play Store, and open the search bar. Write Garena Free Fire. After that, select the option and download and then install the game.If you download it directly from the Play Store, the game should run smoothly after. If you cannot download it directly from the Play Store, check out the next method.
Second method. Replace the data location of the game.
This is the most common thing that can happen, and it has to do with the APK downloads. The Free Fire’s data (OBB) files are not where they should be. And because the data files of the games are not placed where they are supposed to, they cannot sync with the APK that you downloaded.
For this, install the APK’s game, but do not open it yet. Find the tagged folder “com.rockstargames.bully”, and then copy it. Go to the “Android/Obb” file path and then paste the copied folder.
