How long have you played Fortnite? If you have played this game for a long time ago and you forgot when you started playing this game, now you may want to know when you started playing Fortnite. Actually, it is not really important to know when you started playing Fortnite, but if you want to know, you are able to check it by using the methods explained below.
Checking When You Started Playing Fortnite
If you want to know when you started playing Fortnite, it means that you need to know when you created your account. To know when you create your Fortnite account, there are several methods.
The first method is by accessing your email that you used to create an account in Epic Games. Find an email from Epic Games containing the creation of your Fortnite account in your email inbox where usually there are words like “Account Created”. You can check when you made an Epic Games account because Fortnite or Epic Games always sends confirmation emails for various activities such as account creation, purchases, and login attempts. So, check your email inbox and search the earliest email from Fortnite or Epic Games.
Another way to find out when you started playing Fortnite is to check the creation of your Epic Games account in your Epic Games account. It can be done by logging in to the Epic Games website. When you are on the Epic Games website, then you need to go to your account Settings and then find the account creation date. However, a source says that you cannot check the account creation date via your own Epic profile. But, if you wonder whether this method is valid or not, you can try it.
According to the Ricks YouTube Channel, you can check when you started playing Fortnite by logging in to your Epic Games account to the Epic Games website. After logging in, scroll down and then look at the Account Information section and then click on the Create File button next to it. When the Create File button has changed to grey color, you can check your email that is registered to Epic Games account. Ricks Youtube Channel showed that after he clicked on the Create File button and checked his email, he got the email where it says that the PDF file containing the data that you requested is ready to download. You are asked to sign into the Epic Games account page and you are also asked to click the Download button under the Account Information section at the bottom of the page. It is also explained that it will download the password protected PDF containing your data and you will get another email shortly with the password to open the file.
So, you can go back to your Epic Games account and log out. And then, login back. Then, put the cursor on your account name and then choose the Account option. After that, scroll down to the bottom of the page. Then, look at the Account Information section, you will see that the word Create File changes into the Download button. So, click on the Download button. As explained earlier, you will be sent a password in your email. So, go back to your email and then put the password in the available box that appears in your Epic Games account. Then, click on the Continue button. Then, click on the Download button again and then enter the password or code available in the email and then press Submit. And then, you can open the PDF that contains a number of information such as your Display Name, First Name, the date of account creation, etc. That’s what Ricks YouTube channel explained about checking the date of creation account or the date when you started playing Fortnite. I do not know whether this method is still usable or not because he posted the video around 2 years ago, but you can try it.
If you have tried the method above, but no one can help you, the last method that you are able to do is to contact Epic Games support. When you contact the Epic Games support, you are able to ask the date when you started playing Fortnite. They may be able to give you the information about this.
