How to Change Your Nintendo Network ID Password

If you’re having trouble logging into the internet on your Nintendo device because you forgot your password for your Nintendo Network ID, you may be feeling frustrated. You may have even called Nintendo support or gone to a gaming store for help, but with no success. If you’re in this situation, don’t worry, there is a solution.

First, it’s important to note that deleting your Nintendo Network ID will also delete everything you have in the Nintendo eShop. However, if you don’t have anything that you particularly need or want in the eShop, then it won’t be a big deal.

To delete your Nintendo Network ID, go to the System Settings on the home screen by clicking on the little wrench icon. Once you’re there, navigate to the Nintendo Network ID settings and delete your ID from there. However, if you don’t know your password or if email confirmations aren’t working, you’ll need to go to the “Other Settings” tab and select “Format System Memory.”

This will delete all of the information from your Nintendo device, including the purchases you’ve made and your Nintendo Network ID. This can be helpful if you want to create a new Nintendo Network ID. However, if you have anything you want to keep, like purchases from the eShop, this isn’t the best option.

To format the system memory, simply select the “Format System Memory” option and follow the prompts. It’s not too difficult, but it’s important to keep in mind that this will delete all of your information from the device.

It’s frustrating when you can’t access online abilities on your Nintendo device, but by following these steps, you’ll be able to get back online and enjoy your favorite games again. Hopefully, this guide has been helpful to you, and you can now change your Nintendo Network ID password with ease.
