Our lifestyle changes with time. Imagine you were 18 years old in 2004 and you play GTA vice city, you set a unique username. Now, here you are in 2020, you are an adult and play online games like PUBG and Fortnite.
For instance, the username you have set a few years ago for your Fortnite game is now outdated or bizarre. You don’t like it anymore and want to change it. Is it possible? Yes, it is. Follow the steps below to change your Fortnite username.
- Open your web browser and go to the website of Epic Games. Once you are there, log in to your Epic Games account. If you have forgotten your password, you can have it back through the recovery email.
- Once you access your account, you need to scroll down the page and click on the general settings. This leads you to another page where you see the username for your battle royal matches. You also will find other information, which includes email address, Epic Games account history, etc.
- Do you see your display name on the Epic Games Account? If yes, you will also see a blue icon “Pencil” next to the display or username. Click on the icon and this will let you change the username by jumping to another page.
- Once you are on the new screen, this is the place where you can change the username for your Fortnite account. Epic Games will show the current Fortnite game and two empty boxes. They will also warn you about changing the username. It is important to fill out the box with a new username.
- Once you have entered a new username in the box, hit enter and you will see another box where you have to re-enter the username for confirmation. Also, there is a small checkbox, so you need to check it and save the settings. Your new username is ready.
On the Epic Games website, you will see some limitations while you change the username. For instance, once you have changed the username, you can’t re-change it for two weeks. You have to wait for two weeks.
Anyway, the best thing about Epic Games is that they allow people to make changes on their accounts freely – including changes in username or display name. Many other online gaming companies do not even allow users to make changes in usernames. So, Epic Games is the best.
