How do I temporarily disable my Epic Games account?

Disabling your Epic account is temporary. You can always choose to re-enable your account if you decide to play again later. 


  • If you disable your Epic Games account, you won’t be able to use any Epic Games products or services. 
  • Your disabled Epic Games account will remain linked to third-party platform accounts (GitHub, Nintendo, PlayStation Network, Twitch, Xbox).
To temporarily disable your account, please follow the steps below to contact us with your request.
  1. If you haven’t already done so, please verify your Epic Games email address

    Note: If you have any platform accounts linked to the Epic Games account you want to disable, and you want to link those platform accounts to a different Epic account, please unlink those platform accounts from your Epic Games account first.
