How to Fix EA Account is Invalid Error

In recent weeks, EA has been quite busy deactivating accounts due to suspicious activity, and a lot of people are complaining that they can’t log into their EA account on PC, Xbox, or PS4. This suspicious activity could be multiple failed logins, failed attempts to change a password, or the like. Fortunately, the fix is quite simple.

How to Fix EA Account is Invalid Error

If you’re getting the Account is Invalid Error, it means that EA has locked down your account to protect it and your personal information. To fix this error and get back to your online games, all you need to do is reset your EA account password. To do this, head over to EA’s password reset form and type in your Email or EA Id, complete the captcha protection form below it, and then click submit. You should receive an e-mail within a few minutes with a link to reset your password.

When you do reset your password, be sure to choose something that can’t be guessed. A combination of uppercase letters, lowercase letters, symbols, and numbers is recommended, and if you really want to protect your account make sure to use at least 12 characters. It’s also important that it’s not a password that you’ve used elsewhere. Remember, you only have to type in the password once and your game client or console will save it, so the effort to type in a long, multi-character password is a small price to pay for security.

What If I Don’t Have Access to the E-mail associated with my EA Account?

If you’re one of the few that have quit using the e-mail that you used to sign up for your EA account, or if that has been compromised as well, you need to fill out EA’s special webform. If you fill in the required information, EA will reach out to you and help you recover your account. It would also be a good idea to make sure you keep your e-mail address updated in the future.
