How to change username in Fortnite on PS4?

Now, first of all, you need to know that this tutorial will not only allow you to learn how to change your username in Fortnite on PS4, but you will will teach also to do this process on any platform (it is the same for all).

Another thing to take into consideration is that you will only change the Fortnite name, the user ID of the PSN account or the PS4 user will not be changed, to achieve this you have to follow a completely different procedure.



To get straight to the point, the process to complete to change your name in Fortnite is very simple, you just have to andare before to the official Epic Game Store page created for the name change.

Being on this page you have to log in with your data, i.e. associated email and password. Inside the Epic Game Store, you have to press the user icon that appears in the upper right corner of the home screen.

This action will show a menu of options where you need to choose "Account", in this other section all your information will be available including your username.

To access it, you have to choose the option called "Personal Information", which is in the list on the left (usually it is at the top of the list), once there, you have to do click on the box called "Display Name", as that's what you need to completely change.

Put the other name and some general rules!

If you are already above the box you read earlier, all you need to do to finish changing your username in Fortnite on PS4 is to enter any other nicknames.


Next, you will have to confirm it by entering it again in the box that appears below, and in turn you will have to tick the box to accept the conditions of use. Finally, click on the red button called "Confirm".


This will cause the changes to be sent automatically and you will notice once you enter the game from any device, that now your name has changed and the new one is visible (it should be noted that if you had the game open while you were running the process, you will have to restart it to change the nickname).


And voila, with that you managed to change the username in Fortnite on PS4, so you won't be able change it again up to 2 weeks later (make sure you choose the name well).

In case you get an error while changing the name, it could be because the nickname violates the rules of the game, remember that you cannot enter insults or racist names, because they go against company policies.


Change your name to Fortnite it's free and you can do it as many times as you want, but try not to overdo it, because in that case Epic might grab your attention or at least wonder what happens (because you have to admit it seems odd that it changes its name every two weeks, it's something only a hacker would do).
