How to Unlink and Change Your EA Account to Access Madden 18

Sometimes it's easy to forget that you already have an account with a company, especially with the amount of stuff people sign-up to these days. So it's no wonder that a lot of fans are finding out that they've made duplicate EA accounts without realizing it.  

If you accidentally linked your main email address to an EA Account that doesn't have all your games' data, you'll need to swap the email address over. Follow these steps and you should be good to go!

  1. Log into your new EA Account.
  2. Go to EA Account and Billing and edit your Basic Information.
  3. Change your email address to anything other than your main address. You can create a new email address for this purpose or use a spare.
  4. Now that your main email address has been freed up, log into your main EA Account, go to EA Account and Billing and edit Basic Information.
  5. Change update your email address to be your main one.

Hopefully that should be enough to fix this issue. Let me know if it doesn't work or you need any additional support. Most importantly...don't worry about it. I know this can be a frustrating experience at times, but trust me -- there is always a solution.
