Just got a Switch. Would it be safe to use the same account that I use on my 3DS? It's modded with Luma3DS but it's not banned. (knock on wood)

However...since my account has been online at some point on this unit...having a potential banwave would be possibility.

If that happens...would my Switch be pwned for online use?

I use the same account on my Switches and 3DS with Luma, didn't really see a sign of banning and they have no reason to do so. They might at max just ban your account along with your digital purchases, not your un-moded Switch. You can then link the Switch with another new account.

great so it doesn't blacklist the console itself. I don't have any purchases digitally. Only Club Nintendo rewards on 3DS and DSI

I didn't work for Ninty, so I can't promise you that it's 100% safe. But I didn't got banned nor do I think they will do it that way especially in the US. People will file a class suit if they ban un-moded machines.

(I didn't even got banned on the 3DS even until today, and I go online pretty much every time.)

I seem to remember someone actually asking Nintendo this directly (as they had a My Nintendo account linked to a banned NNID) a while ago and the response they got was that they were separate things.
I wouldn't worry.

The account shouldn't be a problem, it's not flagging the console specifically. Your account on the 3DS and the Switch are also effectively separate unless you do something like fraud.

What the ban-issue is with the Switch is if they detect it's unique ID in association with cheating or unowned products or whatnot. Then they will blacklist the console, which is permanent.
