Chances are that you’ve at least downloaded Fortnite on PlayStation 4. After all, it’s one of the most popular games ever, as evidenced by the 27 million players who participated in the in-game Travis Scott concert back in April. Even though it’s still insanely popular, there are a handful of things it could do better — like implementing a clearer way to log out of your account. This guide will walk you through how to log out of Fortnite on PS4.
There are multiple avenues you can take to log out of your account on PS4, all of which involve using a browser. This can be done from the PS4 itself or a PC, tablet, or phone. Since navigating the PS4’s browser is a bit clunky, you might want to consider using a separate device to do this.

Logging out via PS4
After you launch Fortnite, you might be looking for a specific log out option from the main menu. Unfortunately, it’s not that simple. Instead, you need to press the Options button from the game’s main menu, scroll down, and select the Support option. This will open up the PlayStation browser.
You’ll be brought to the Epic Games website, so once the page loads, head to the top right of the screen and press Sign In. Use this to sign in to your Epic Games account (keep in mind that you might have to use a verification code to get signed in). After you’re in, go back to the same spot, and you’ll see your username. If you hover over it, a new option will appear, labeled Account — select that option.
This will direct you to a new page with several options on the left-hand side of the screen. You’ll want to click the Connections option.
The submenu defaults to Apps, so click on the Accounts. This will allow you to see a list of every Fortnite connection you’ve made, including the PlayStation Network. Select PlayStation Network, check all the boxes, then press Unlink. That logs you out of your Fortnite account on PS4. You can use the same steps to log out of other systems like Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
To change users, you have to relaunch the game after completely shutting it down. The game will now display a sign-in page where you can enter the relevant PS4 user information or add a different account.
Logging out of PS4 account via PC
To log out of Fortnite on PS4 from a phone, tablet, or PC, you’ll simply perform the steps outlined above from whatever device you’re using. The process should be a little easier since you’re probably more familiar with browsers on your other devices than you are with PS4’s browser, but the procedure is ultimately the same one as the one for logging out of the PS4 system.
Go directly to the Epic Games website and sign in using the top right option, as described above. Then you can head back to your account, go to Connections, and unlink your PSN account. When you launch Fortnite on your PS4, it will have you sign in and link an account.
