If your child wants to play EA games, learn how to set up a child account for them so they can stay safe while they play.
Set up your child’s account using the Origin client to get them in the game.
Parents and guardians, make your own EA Account before creating one for your child. Use your email address to set it up — you’ll use it again as the parental email for your child’s account.
Already have an account? Just use the same email address from your account as the parental email on your child’s.
If you need to contact us for help with either account — yours or your child’s — use your account to talk to us.
You’ll get an email verifying that you created your child’s account. Follow the instructions in the email to activate it.Having trouble?
Make sure you’re using the Origin client to set up a child account. Since child accounts have limited access to online features, they can’t use origin.com to sign up.
Download the Origin client to get started.
When you purchase an eligible game on disc from a retail store or site, it will come with a Product Code. Log in to your child's EA Account, and redeem the Product Code in Origin to add the game to that account.
Underage accounts cannot make purchases in the online Origin store, because they have limited access to online features due to age restrictions. Find out more about what you can and can’t do online with a child account.
Children who have underage accounts can upgrade their account to a full access account once they reach a certain age, which varies from country to country.
