As of September 11th, Apple will no longer allow users to sign into Epic Games accounts using “Sign in with Apple.” If you’re using the Apple sign-in feature, make sure to update your Epic Games account email and password before Friday.
If you currently use “Sign In with Apple” for your Epic account, Epic says you’ll need to update your account with new login credentials before September 11th to retain access. Epic has put together a guide on how to make that update if you need to do so. Epic also says that it may be able to recover your account manually after the “Sign in with Apple” option goes away, but you’ll have to contact the studio directly.
Apple requires developers to use its single sign-on system if they offer any other third-party options and want their apps in the App Store presumably a driving factor behind Epic offering the service as a sign-in factor in the first place.
t’s also worth noting that Fortnite, which is available across many platforms, is most popular on iOS. Epic said in a legal filing last week that it has 116 million registered users on iOS, which accounts for nearly a third of the 350 million total registered Fortnite users. If even a fraction of those users rely on “Sign in with Apple” and don’t change their login credentials in time, there’s a chance that many people could lose access to their accounts.
