If you're jumping into FIFA 21 you may want to change your EA account.

Perhaps your account isn't linked correctly? Here's how to change your EA accounts and link it up correctly.


How To Change Your EA Account

If your Xbox Gamertag, PlayStation™Network Online ID, and/or Nintendo Account are linked to an EA Account you don’t use, you can update that account to get back in the game.

If you made a second account with your primary email address, you can move the email to the account with your games.

If you’ve got multiple EA Accounts with games on them, one of the advisors may be able to help combine your accounts.


If we move a PlayStation™Network Online ID, Xbox Gamertag, or Nintendo Account to another EA Account, that’s called a persona transfer. Persona transfers are risky and can be damaging to one or more of your accounts.

A persona is a platform-specific username that you use to play our games. In this case, it means your Nintendo Switch account, PlayStation™Network ID (PSN ID), or your Xbox Live Gamertag.

How To Link Your EA Account With Your Xbox, PlayStation or Nintendo Switch

Here's how to link your EA Account with your persona/account:

  • Click the Log In button at the top of any page. 
  • Click on the Accounts dropdown in the middle of the screen, then choose Account Security. 
  • Go to the About Me tab.
  • Scroll down to Connected Accounts. If you don’t see your platform, it isn’t linked.

How Can I Check If I Already Have An EA Account?
