If your child wants to play EA games, learn how to set up a child account for them so they can stay safe while they play.

Set up your child’s account using the EA app to get them in the game.

Parents and guardians, make your own EA Account before creating one for your child. Use your email address to set it up — you’ll use it again as the parental email for your child’s account.

Already have an account? Just use the same email address from your account as the parental email on your child’s.

If you need to contact us for help with either account — yours or your child’s — use your account to talk to us.

To create a child account, launch the EA app and follow these steps:

  1. On the login window, click Create an account.
    • If you’re already logged in, you’ll need to log out first.
  2. Pick your Country, enter your child's Date of birth, and click Next.
  3. Select your region and date of birth from the drop-down menus that appear before you can click Next.

  4. Enter the email address from your own EA Account in the Parent's or Guardian’s email address field.
  5. Create an EA ID for your child.
  6. Choose a password that both you and your child will remember.
    • We recommend choosing a password that’s different from your own. 
    • This will be what your child will use to login. Write your child’s ID and password down, then keep them in a safe place. That way you’ll both always have a way to remember them.
    • If you forget their password later on, you can reset it in a few quick steps.
  7. Read and accept the Privacy & Cookie Policy and the User Agreement, then click on Create Account.
  8. A checkbox to accept the User Agreement and Privacy and Cookie Policy will appear before creating an account.

You’ll get an email verifying that you created your child’s account. Follow the instructions in the email to activate it.

Having trouble?

Child accounts can’t use ea.com to sign up so make sure you’re using the EA app to set up a child account.

Download the EA app to get started.

When you purchase an eligible game on disc from a retail store or site, it will come with a Product Code. Log in to your child's EA Account, and redeem the Product Code in the EA app to add the game to that account.
