How to Reset Your Epic Games Password

Epic Games is a world-famous games developer and distributor known for their hugely successful games like Fortnite and Gears of War. To play games published by Epic Games or sold on the Epic Games store, you need to have an account. Creating an account is easy – just head to the Epic Games website and click “Sign In” and then “Sign Up”.

If you’ve forgotten your Epic Games password, attempt to sign in to your account on the Epic Games website as usual, but, instead of typing your password, click “Forgot Your Password” and follow the prompts.

If you simply want to change your Epic Games password, you can do so on the Epic Games website in the “Account” section.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to reset your Epic Games password:

Change your Epic Games password in the “Account” section

  2. In the top right corner, hover your cursor over “Sign In” to reveal the drop down menu, and then click on “Account”.

  3. Your account settings will open. In the left sidebar, click “Password & Security”.

  4. Enter your current password and then type a new password. Confirm your new password by retyping it in the “Retype New Password” field. Click “Save Changes”.

How to reset your Epic Games password if you’ve forgotten it

If you’ve forgotten your password, you can easily reset it.

  1. In any browser on a Mac or PC, go to the Epic Games website

  2. In the top right corner of the screen, click “Sign In”.

  3. When asked to choose how to sign in to your account, click “Sign in with Epic Games”.

  4. On the sign-in page, click “Forgot Your Password”.

  5. Type in the email address associated with your account and click “Send Email”.

When you change or reset your password, create a strong one to keep yourself secure. The best passwords have a combination of upper and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols. The longer your password, the better.

And remember — never let your browser remember your passwords. If someone got hold of your device or you became a target of malware, a hacker could access all your passwords without you even knowing. As you’re reading this, millions of usernames and passwords are sold on the dark web for anyone to use as they like.

There’s a high possibility that your details have been used or been part of a breach in the past. In fact, you can check if your email address has been breached on Have I Been Pwned. Whether it’s an unsecured site, a company-wide breach, your own negligence, or a weak password asking for trouble, stealing passwords has become big business for cybercriminals, and you could become a victim at any time. Even if you’re in the clear now, think how easily your passwords could get stolen.
