The process of name change can be performed by the different platforms of the game, only the process is different in each of them (as well as the split screen game process, matchmaking, etc.).

Many users change their name to Fortnite to join groups or insert phrases that identify them from a clan (in Fortnite you can even put strange names, with rare letters, numbers, etc.). It also happens that they simply no longer wish to have that name and prefer to use another one. Whatever the reason, this process is very simple and quick to apply.
