Today, we are going to be looking at how to delete an Epic Games account, whether it is because hackers are trying to log into your account or you are a bit of a rager who thinks deleting all traces of gaming is going to improve your life.
Before deleting your Epic account, please be aware that this cannot be reversed. Epic Games warn customers, so make sure you 100% want to do this before proceeding. If you are unsure, you could just disable your account or uninstall Epic Games Launcher from your PC or Mac instead.

Request account delete
In the “General” tab, scroll down to the very bottom to the “Delete Account” section and click the “Request Account Delete” button
Enter security code
An “Enter Security Code” window will now pop up, this means a code has been sent to your email account that is linked to your Epic Games account, enter the code and click “Confirm Delete Request”

You will then be asked why you are deleting your account, you can either answer from the drop-down list or simply skip this step.
