Does Fortnite delete old accounts?

Answered by Randy McIntyre

Fortnite does have a policy regarding the deletion of old accounts. If an account remains inactive for a certain period of time, it may be permanently deleted. This is typically done to free up usernames and ensure that active players have a better chance of securing the name they want.

If you are a parent who wants to delete your child’s Fortnite account, the process is relatively simple. Here are the steps you can follow:

1. Contact Epic Games Support: Visit the Epic Games Support website and navigate to the “Contact Us” section. You can usually find this at the bottom of the website or under the “Help” or “Support” tab. Look for a button or link that says “Contact Us” or “Submit a Request.”

2. Select the appropriate options: When submitting a request, you will usually be asked to provide some information about the issue you’re facing. Choose the relevant options that best describe your situation. In this case, you may want to select categories such as “Account Management” or “General Inquiry.”

3. Fill out the form: Once you’ve selected the appropriate options, you will be directed to a form where you can provide more details about the account you wish to delete. Make sure to include your child’s username, email address associated with the account, and any other relevant information. The more specific you can be, the easier it will be for Epic Games Support to assist you.

4. Submit the request: After filling out the form, double-check all the information you provided and click on the “Submit” or “Send” button to send your request to Epic Games Support.

5. Follow any additional instructions: Epic Games Support may respond to your request with further instructions or questions. It’s important to keep an eye on your email or any communication channels you provided during the submission process. Respond promptly to ensure a smooth resolution.

It’s worth noting that the deletion of an account is typically permanent, and any progress, purchases, or in-game items associated with the account will be lost. Therefore, it’s important to consider this decision carefully before proceeding.

In my personal experience, I have seen cases where parents have chosen to delete their child’s Fortnite account due to concerns about excessive gaming or other reasons. It’s always important to have open communication with your child and discuss the reasons behind such decisions.
