How do I retain access to my Epic Games account after “Sign in with Apple” ends?

Apple previously stated they would terminate “Sign In with Apple” support for Epic Games accounts after September 11, 2020, but today provided an indefinite extension. If you have previously used “Sign In with Apple”, we still recommend you prepare your accounts now for “Sign In with Apple” removal.

Update Your Email

To maintain access to your account you need to update your email address with Epic Games. To do so, follow these steps:

  • Login to the Epic Games General Settings page with your Apple ID and update your email address to reflect your real email address. The email you currently see on your account may appear as Don’t worry when you’re asked to enter a security code sent to that email before you change it - just check your real email inbox and you’ll find the security code there.

You can find detailed steps here about how to change your Epic Games account email.

  • If you were unable to update your email address prior to “Sign In with Apple” support ending and are no longer seeing “Sign In with Apple” as a login option, we still may be able to recover your account manually. Please click “CONTACT US” below and provide us with the verification code that was in the email you received about this (the email subject line is: “IMPORTANT! Epic Games account update required for continued access”). The verification code you received should look like this: ABC-123-DEF.

Update Your Password

If you have used “Sign In with Apple” you may not have set up an Epic Games account password previously so you’ll need to do that now.

  • Login to the Epic Games Change Your Password page with your Apple ID and enter a new password.
  • If you were unable to update your password prior to “Sign In with Apple” being removed but your email address was correct, please follow the steps on the Epic Games Forgot Password page.
