There are several reasons users may experience difficulties when attempting to log in.
Forgotten SQUARE ENIX ID and/or Password
Related error message: ‘ID or password is incorrect.’
If you are unable to locate your SQUARE ENIX ID, you should first attempt to log in using the email address registered to the SQUARE ENIX ID. Once logged in, the SQUARE ENIX ID should display at the top of the page. Please be aware that email addresses must match the registered e-mail address on the SQUARE ENIX Account, including case sensitivity. If the casing does not match the account as it was registered, the system will send an e-mail stating that the address is not associated with a SQUARE ENIX Account.
If you have forgotten your password, please use the password reset function. Please keep in mind that the Security Question and Answer needed to change the password is also case sensitive. When registering an account, users are forced to select and answer one of the four predetermined questions. If you have forgotten or are not sure which question you chose, please attempt to answer each of the questions provided. Spaces are also accepted as valid characters in Secret Answers. If you are certain of the answer for your chosen Secret Question, yet the system is not accepting your entry, please try adding a space before or after your entry.
If you continue to have difficulties, please contact the SQUARE ENIX Support Center by using the Additional Assistance button below.
