Instructions on registering an e-mail address to a supervised Nintendo Account.
Supervised Nintendo Account owners age 13 or older can register an e-mail address to their account if they have not already done so.
Registering an e-mail address allows users to manage their own Nintendo Account settings, link social media accounts (Facebook, Google, Twitter or Apple ID), 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:
Log into the supervised Nintendo Account where you want to register the e-mail address.
Select “User info.”
Scroll down and select “Register an e-mail 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 e-mail address or you are not yet old enough.
Click “Send 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.
When the e-mail arrives, have your parent or guardian provide the 6-digit verification code included in the e-mail.
Enter the code and select “OK.”
Enter the e-mail address you want to register to the supervised Nintendo Account, and select “Register.”
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.
Select “OK” again to complete the registration.
