There are a number of different ways to set up your profile. Here’s what you can do to make your settings work for you.

Preferred Data Usage

EA In-Game Targeted Advertising

This setting controls what data will be used to show you advertising, reminders, and in-game offers we think may be of interest to you. If you turn it off by unchecking EA In-Game Targeted Advertising in the Privacy Settings tab, you may still see ads from EA, but they won’t be based on information collected across EA games.

EA Targeted Advertising on mobile games

For mobile games, you'll need to opt out of in-game targeted advertising in your game's settings menu.

Each mobile game is different, but look for an option labeled Privacy or Privacy Settings. From there, you’ll find the setting for EA In-Game Targeted Advertising that you can turn it off.

EA Targeted Advertising on Third-Party Websites and Platforms

This setting controls whether EA shares data from your EA Account with our third-party partners for EA targeted advertising on other websites and platforms.

Profile Privacy

Who can see my EA Account profile?

Decide who can see your activity on EA platforms like the EA app. There are four options to choose from:

  • Everyone - Any player can view your profile, even if you're not friends with them. Anyone can be recommended to you as a friend.
  • Friends - Only your friends can view your profile.
  • Friends of friends - Your friends and their friends will be able to see your profile. These are players who may be recommended to you as a friend.
  • No one - You’ll be the only one able to see your achievements, game library, friends list, and wishlist. You also won’t get any friend recommendations.

You can also choose whether you want your real name to appear on your profile by checking the Real Name box. If not, leave it unchecked.
