How do I delete my Epic Games Account?

Please be aware that deleting your account can’t be reversed, so make sure you want to complete this process before proceeding. If you change your mind after requesting deletion, you have 14 days to reactivate your account by logging into it. If you do not reactivate it, after 14 days your account will be permanently deleted.
