Where Do I Find the Confirmation Code for Nintendo Switch?

When creating a new Nintendo Account for a Nintendo Switch console, you will be given the option to enter a 5-digit confirmation code to complete the process.

To receive the confirmation code, you will need to select “Send account-creation instructions via e-mail” during the account creation process, then click the link in the e-mail to create your account and receive the confirmation code.

Important:

Please note that this process is optional. If you have any issues with the code or the e-mail, you can follow the standard steps for adding a Nintendo Account to a new user account or existing user account on Nintendo Switch.
