Why is Fortnite asking for my birthday?

Confused about why Fortnite needs to know your age? Don’t worry, we have the reason why.

Epic Games’ age requirements follow the release of Fortnite Chapter 4. The latest addition to the series gives fans the chance to ride around on motorbikes, play as Geralt of Rivia, and overcome obstacles while exploring the newly formed island. Not only that, but Epic Games has also unveiled a new selection of weapons and POIs for players to use.

With all this new content to experience, players are wondering why they have to provide their age to access it.

The reason Fortnite asks for your birthday is to ensure that younger players can experience a reasonably suitable environment while playing the game. In a blog post from the Fortnite team, they announced that they would be introducing cabined accounts. These accounts are given to the younger players and require the email address of a parent or legal guardian to be provided.

Once the Cabined accounts are up and running, parents can decide whether or not certain features of the game should be accessible to their children. It’s important to note that obtaining a Cabined account will not result in the loss of purchased content or progress. It’s just a safety precaution that gives parents the ability to filter out any content they deem inappropriate for their children. Once the desired parental settings have been entered, your account will no longer be a Cabined account.
