When you attempt to join a friend in a game through the home page’s friend tab, if they are in a private server (that you also have access too) you will get an error saying
You do not have permission to join this game (Error Code: 524). However, if you click on the game, go to the “servers” tab you will see you can join your friends private server.
This bug happens everytime, the steps to reproduce are:
- Go to the Roblox Homepage
- Get your friend to join a private server - that has
- Attempt to join that friend through the home page’s friend bar, as shown in this screenshot.
I’ve tested this multiple times - it’s not a game-specific issue, it is site-wide. The expected behaviour is that it lets you join your friend through the home page. Rather than needing to click on the game & then manually join the private server.
Here is a video to show you the bug:

Intel® Core™ i3-7100 CPU @ 3.90GHz, 3912 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)

The bug has been happening for quite a few months, I cannot remember when it started.
