To enrich your experience when playing Ubisoft titles, we provide the ability to track your completed actions and earn game-specific rewards. All of this is handled through your Ubisoft account, so it's important to have your Ubisoft account linked to the other accounts you're using to access our games.


How to Review the External Accounts Linked to Your Ubisoft Account
To view the external accounts linked to your Ubisoft account:
1. Navigate to the Account Management website, and log in to your Ubisoft account.
2. Click on the Account Information tile.
3. Navigate to the Linked accounts section.

Below, you'll find an example of what your linked external accounts will look like on the Account Management site. Based on the image, you can see that a PlayStation Network ID, Xbox Gamertag, Google Account, and Steam account have been linked to this Ubisoft account.

Explanation of the Reference Account
The reference account is the console account (PlayStation Network, Xbox Live, Switch, Stadia) that is linked to your Ubisoft account. Once your console account has been linked to your Ubisoft account, only that console account can be re-linked. No other console account can be later associated with the original Ubisoft account. 

The reference account was introduced to guarantee a safe cross-play and cross-progression experience. When linking or unlinking an account, a warning message may appear to indicate what your reference account is.

If you previously unlinked a console account from your Ubisoft account, this console account will need to be re-linked to the same Ubisoft account that it was previously associated with. If you’re receiving an error while trying to link a console account to your Ubisoft account, the reference account will be shown to you. 

Note: Progress and some purchases are tied to the reference account and will be lost if the reference account is permanently unlinked.
