I'm creating this post to help users who might be confused about where to find their Nintendo Switch friend codes. It is a recurring theme that seems to keep popping up, so I figured this thread might server as a useful tool to direct people to. Let's begin.
Note: This applies to finding friend codes for both the Nintendo Switch Lite and the regular Nintendo Switch.
Friend codes are a unique series of numbers that are given to user accounts on the Nintendo Switch system. These numbers are linked to Nintendo Accounts and allow other users to add you as a friend to begin playing together online. Friend codes are basically the Nintendo Switch's form of sending and receiving friend requests.
How to find your Nintendo Switch friend code
1.) Select the user icon for your Nintendo account from the Switch's home menu.
2.) Select the Profile section from the left hand menu, and you should see your friend code listed on the right side of the screen along with other information about your account.
And that's it! You should now have found your nintendo switch friendcode. Please let me know if you run into any issues and I'll do my best to help. If you prefer to watch a video tutorial instead, check out this youtube tutorial showing you how:
