How to Register an E-mail Address to a Supervised Nintendo Account

Instructions on registering an e-mail address to a supervised Nintendo Account.

Additional Information:

  • Supervised Nintendo Account owners age 13 or older can register an email address to their account if they have not already done so.

  • Registering an email address allows users to manage their own Nintendo Account settings, link social media accounts (Google or Apple), and sign up to receive newsletters.

  • Registering an e-mail address to a supervised Nintendo Account does not change the family group status or any parental controls that are set for the account.

Complete These Steps:
  1. Log into the supervised Nintendo Account where you want to register the email address.

  2. Select “User information”.

  3. Scroll down and select “Register Email Address.”

    • This option is available to Nintendo Accounts for users age 13 and older, that have not yet registered an e-mail address.

    • If this option does not appear, you have already registered an email address or you are not yet old enough.

    • For assistance with changing an e-mail address that is already associated with your Nintendo Account, click here.

  4. Click “Request code” to send a 6-digit verification code to the e-mail address associated to the family group admin (a parent or guardian account).

    • The family group admin (a parent or guardian) will need to provide the verification code for security.

  5. When the email arrives, have your parent or guardian provide the 6-digit verification code included in the e-mail.

  6. Enter the code and select “Confirm”.

  7. Enter the email address you want to register to the supervised Nintendo Account, and select “Continue”.

  8. A 4-digit verification code will be sent to the e-mail address you provided. When you receive the e-mail, enter the code and click “OK.”

    • Your verification code should arrive within a few minutes.

    • If it has been over one hour since you requested the verification code but you have not received an e-mail, make sure that you are entering your e-mail address correctly, and click "Resend verification code" to have a new verification code sent.

  9. Select “Confirm” again to complete the registration.
