How to change your name in Fortnite

If after a while the game Fortnite came up with a cool name to stand out more and want to change it, you are here. It doesn’t matter if you play on mobile, console or PC. We will explain step by step how to do it on each device. It is very easy, in general, it consists in changing the Epic Games Alias.

What is the nickname for Epic Games?

An alias in Epic Games is the name that appears in all of the company’s official games on PC, Mac, Switch, or mobile devices. However, this name does not apply to PSN and Xbox consoles. But don’t worry, keep reading.

How to Change Fortnite Name on PC, Mac, Switch or Mobile

To do this, you must first verify your account. You can learn how to do this here . Then go to the official Epic Games page and sign in. Now follow these steps:

  1. click on your account name (it’s on the top right)
  2. click on “account”
  3. on the next page, you will see your username and a pencil next to it. Click on it and write the name you prefer
  4. click “save changes”

The username must be available. That’s why I recommend that you keep a few ideas in mind when changing it. If the name change window is blocked, you will have to wait no more than fourteen days to try again.

How to Change Fortnite Name on PSN and Xbox

The names you set on each console have nothing to do with Epic Games. So you can have one name on console and another on PC or mobile. Here’s how to change the name on each console.


  1. go to the official Xbox page and log in
  2. click on your name
  3. click “Xbox Profile”
  4. click “Personalization” and then on the pencil that appears next to your name
  5. enter the desired name


  1. Sign in to the official PlayStation page
  2. click on your name
  3. Click “Account Settings”
  4. click “PSN Profile” and edit “Online Identification”.
  5. enter the desired name

All of these actions can be performed from a computer. If you are doing this from your mobile phone, you can download the PlayStation app or Xbox apps and change the name to them, however we recommend using a PC.

The name you set on each console must be unique. and will be used in all compatible games you play on the console. That is, if you put “XxJavierKillxX” on Xbox, you will be called that in Fortnite and in all Xbox games.

Can I change my name as many times as I want?

Yes, you can change your name as many times as you like, although it varies by device. For example, if it’s on a PC, mobile or switch, you can do it for free every two weeks. If it’s on Xbox or PlayStation, the first name change is free, but the rest have a price. In Spain, changing the name on both platforms costs €9.99. It varies in other parts of the world.
