How to Fix EA Anticheat Error

Stop. I know what you’re thinking, another guide that wont work. But wait, and follow the steps below in exact order and this should fix your problem. It works for me, and 3 friends that I helped with this.

Follow these steps:

  1. Uninstall FACEIT Anticheat

Sounds stupid, but it conflicts with EA’s Anticheat services.

You can do this through the “Add or remove programs” in Windows , and then select uninstall faceit AC and all of its components.

  1. Disable Real-time protection

This stops Windows antivirus blocking EA’s Anticheat from accessing the internet.

  1. Uninstall EA Anticheat Services

This is by default located in C:/Program Files/EA/AC/EAAntiCheat.Installer.exe

Run the Installer, then click Uninstall All.

  1. Verify integrity of game files

This is done through Steam by right clicking the game on your Library and Properties , then Verify integrity.

  1. Restart PC (Necessary, Do Not Skip This Step!)
  2. Right click Steam.exe and Run as Administrator

Do not run Origin or EA app. Let Steam open this when launching FIFA 23 through Steam.

  1. Make sure no Origin or EA background processes are running

Open task manager and be sure to end the process of any EA related / Origin related services or applications running in the background.

  1. Launch FIFA 23

This might take some time to run first-time installs , when the anticheat page pops up. Press Reinstall EA Anticheat.

  1. You will now receive a prompt that says EA Anticheat has been installed, please restart the game
  2. Restart Steam, again

I know, sounds stupid. But restart Steam, and make sure you launch as administrator.

  1. Launch FIFA 23, the problem should now be fixed
