The days of just loading up a game and playing are far behind us now, with Fortnite requiring you to log in using your Epic Games ID. But what happens if you've forgotten the email address linked to your Fortnite account?


It can be pretty easy to forget, particularly if a lot of time has passed, which email address you used to sign up - especially as Epic Games have multiple games as part of their library and you could have signed up while playing any one of them.

Well, if you find yourself stuck in that situation and want to jump into the new Fortnite season or the latest live event, there is a way to find out what email address you used for Fortnite. Find out how below!

How to check which email is linked to your Fortnite and Epic account

There are two ways to go about this, one simple and one less so. The first is only applicable if you are already signed in. If you are signed in to Fortnite:

More like this
  • Go to the top right of the screen and select the Settings option.
  • Choose support and you will be redirected to the Epic website.
  • Hit 'My Account' in the top right.
  • Scroll down to Personal Information and you will see contact and address details which will include your email - sorted!

The other way comes in handy if you're locked out of Fortnite and can't work out how to sign in. For this method, you will first need to go to the Epic website and try to log in using your Xbox, PlayStation, or Nintendo login details.

If you can't remember those, you will need to select the option for forgotten login details, and now enjoy the fun game of trying all the emails it could possibly be, until you find the right one. Check your emails after each one and, hopefully, one of those will be the winner and you will get the option in an email to reset your details.

One day we will remember to make a note of all these different accounts we have! But today is not that day.
