Setting an account name for Accounts created through STEAM

An EVE Online account that has been created through STEAM does not have an account name or password and therefore can not be logged into outside of STEAM, the Help Center, or easily used as target account for character transfers.

It is however possible to set up an account name and password for all Steam integrated EVE accounts through the Account Management pages.

  • Log into “Account Management” by selecting the green “Sign on through STEAM” button:

  • Once signed in, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the "Create EVE Username" button under "ACCOUNT".


Once set, it will be possible to log into the account using the new account name and password within the game launcher as well, should a log in through STEAM not be possible for any reason.
